    Five dead in Chattanooga shooting

    The attacks, which were mere minutes apart, began when a single shooter, identified as 24-year-old Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, drove a silver Ford Mustang convertible to a Lee Highway recruiting center at 10:45 a.m and fired more than a dozen rounds into the building. After his initial barrage, he led responding police officers on a high-speed chase down Amnicola Highway to a second military installation, where he opened fire again and was killed after a gun battle that one witness estimated lasted 20 minutes.

    Abdulazeez is from Hixson, Tennessee, which is just a few miles across the river from Chattanooga. He was booked for a DUI in April 2015. He wrestled in high school and became an MMA fighter afterward, according to Ryan Smith, who was a year behind Abdulazeez at Red Bank High School. Abdulazeez's family was very religious, Smith said. The women in Abdulazeez's family wore traditional Islam head coverings, Smith said.
