Nevermind the terrorist’s abroad….
They are others here among us…..
The gunman who opened fire at a Naval facility in Tennessee on Thursday morning, killing four Marines, has been identified as Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, according to the FBI.
Authorities say they are investigating the shooting as a possible terror attack. Before he was killed Thursday afternoon, Abdulazeez, 24, also wounded a member of the Navy, a Chattanooga police officer and a third person, military officials said.
“It is a heartbreaking circumstance for these individuals who have served our country with great valor to be killed in this fashion,” President Obama said during remarks delivered from the Oval Office.
He said he wanted the families of the victims to know “they have our full support as they try to overcome the grief that’s involved here.”
Obama said that he has been in touch with the Pentagon and said officials were working to make sure other defense facilities were well protected.
“While we expect our sailors and Marines to go into harm’s way, and they do so without hesitation, an attack at home, in our community, is insidious and unfathomable,” Ray Mabus, secretary of the Navy, said in a statement.
Abdulazeez, of Hixson, Tenn., opened fire at the Navy Operational Support Center, which the U.S. Navy said provides support for reserve component personnel, after he shot at an armed forces recruiting center.
This is NOT the first case of an attack against a US military recruitiing office….Share on Facebook
