What kind of characteristics does a man who killed 4 marines and and wounds 3 people have? Does he come from a nice home? A poor family? What is his religion? What made him do it?
These are all questions we ask ourselves when learning about this story. Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez was a 24 year old student known for a love for martial arts, humor and charm. Friends and former coaches were shocked to hear it was their loved one who had committed such crimes. Abdulazeez fired shots into US military recruiting center then drove 7 miles to a US Navy Operational Support Center to finish the job. Abdulazeez is a citizen of the United States born in Kuwait however, FBI officials say they will be conducting the investigation as if it was a “terrorism investigation” until proven it is not.
