[Ed. Note: The CBS News opened tonight with these words, “Today the US Military came under attack, not overseas, but here at home.” The shooter has been named as ‘Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’. What an incredibly useful tool this will be to motivate Americans into supporting more wars in Muslim nations.]
from AP, via CBS News:
A gunman unleashed a barrage of gunfire at two military facilities Thursday in Tennessee, killing at least four Marines and wounding a soldier and a police officer, officials told CBS News.
The shooter also was killed. Law enforcement sources told CBS News that the shooting suspect was identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. According to a U.S. law enforcement source, Abdulazeez was born in Kuwait and came to the United States in 1996. It’s unclear if and when he became an American citizen.
A U.S. official told CBS News that Abdulazeez was not on law enforcement radar concerning possible terror links or aspirations. The FBI was not aware of him as being any kind of threat.
