Multiple shooters involved in Chattanooga military shootings?

Ante Sarlija

Following the shooting that took place at two military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on July 16th, we were told (once again) that it was the work of 'a lone gunman' who suddenly 'went postal'. The story goes that the suspect drove a silver Ford Mustang convertible to the first recruiting center and began his shooting-spree. Eyewitness April Grimmett said she was working at a nearby hair-salon when she glanced out a window and saw someone ducking between cars.

"Shortly after that, we heard the (shots). It was very loud and very fast," she said. "I could not believe how many bullet holes were in that door. It was insane."

Another eyewitness at a nearby restaurant said she saw a man in a silver convertible Mustang fire a "high-powered rifle" at the recruiting office's entrance at about 10:50 am. "He never got out of the car," she said. "He had a big, huge, high-powered rifle, and he was unloading shots right into the recruiters."

The gunman then fled and a high-speed chase with police ensued down Amnicola Highway. Upon reaching a second military installation, a naval reserve center about eight miles away, the gunman again opened fire, killing at least four marines before he himself was shot and killed by police. The circumstances of his death are not yet known.

There were also reports that another shooting took place at a mall in nearby Bradley County, but that "turned out to be false."

The alleged 'lone gunman' has been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a Kuwaiti-born U.S. citizen. His friends were baffled by the incident, saying that it's something they would never have imagined him doing.
