Mohammod Abdulazeez (Chattanooga military shooting, 2015) – shot and killed four Marines and fatally wounded a Navy sailor after opening fire on two unguarded military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee on July 16, 2015. Abdulazeez, a native of Kuwait, reportedly suffered from depression since he was a child, first seeing a psychiatrist at the age of 12 or 13, according to family members, who admitted he was medicated “like many children are.” After graduating college with an engineering degree, Abdulazeez lost his job at a nuclear power plant for failing a drug. Leading up the shooting, the 24-year-old was taking a range of prescription drugs including sleep aids, painkillers, opioids and muscle relaxers, and sometimes mixing them with alcohol and marijuana. Abdulazeez was killed in a hail of gun fire by police after opening fire at the second military facility.
