The United States of America has been hit by another incident of domestic terrorism on Thursday, 16th of July, as a  gunman attacked the Tennessee Military Recruitment Center killing 4 marines and leaving several others injured. The security operatives promptly responded to the attack leaving the gunman dead.

The culprit has been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, originally from Kuwait, first attacked a recruitment center at a strip mall with an automatic rifle on Thursday before driving seven miles north in a rented silver convertible Ford Mustang to a U.S. Naval Reserve Center.

There the 24-year old engineering graduate, who reportedly visited the Middle East in the last two years, fatally gunned down four Marines through a perimeter fence before a local police officer shot and killed him during a brutal standoff. At least three others were injured.

Hours after the shooting, law enforcement raided his family’s house in the upscale neighborhood of Hixson, just a mile away from the scene of the first shooting, and took two women away in handcuffs.
