TN Ambush at Military Sites/Threat of Storms/Dog Mows Lawn

(RNN) - The FBI confirmed 24-year-old Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez was the shooter who opened fire on a military recruiting center and reserve center in Chattanooga on Thursday morning. Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke said four U.S. Marines were killed in the incident. FBI officials also confirmed three others were injured, including a police officer. The shooter also died. An autopsy will be performed on Abdulazeez. "We believe it's a single shooter at this point. We have no reason to believe there was another shooter," Ed Reinhold, special agent in charge with the FBI, said.Officials don't yet have a motive for the shooting.  CNN reports the shooter was armed with "an AK-47 style weapon‎." Police have not confirmed the report. Abdulazeez was born in Kuwait and had Jordanian citizenship before becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen, officials said. He attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. He was arrested for a DUI in April, but did not have any other run-ins with law. Multiple people who say they went to high school with Abdulazeez sent the Times Free Press photos of what appears to be his senior picture and quote in his high school yearbook. "My name causes national security alerts," his quote reads. "What does yours do?" Abdulazeez wrestled in high school and became an MMA fighter afterward. However, those who knew him did not associate him with violence.

Heat and humidity are on a rapid rise today and so is the threat of showers and storms.  Temperatures will soar to near 90 degrees if we get enough sunshine during the day.  It will becoming quite sticky, steamy and sultry during the afternoon.  Friday night will be muggy with a few showers and storms ending by daybreak.  Temperatures are expected to climb above 90 on Saturday with just a slight risk of an isolated storm during the day.
