CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — The man who authorities say killed four Marines in an attack on two military sites in Chattanooga, Tennessee, was a 24-year-old, Kuwaiti-born engineer who had not been on the radar of federal authorities until Thursday's attack.
Little is known about Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez of Hixson, Tennessee, or what motivated his rampage before police shot him dead.
Federal authorities are looking into the possibility that it was an act of terrorism.
In response to Thursday’s deadly shootings at military facilities in Tennessee, Chicago Police is stationing officers at all military recruiting sites.
Police say it’s out of “an abundance of caution” and that there have been no direct threats.
The officers will remain there until further notice.
Superintendent Garry McCarthy says it's out of an abundance of caution.
