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.
