Chattanooga Shooting: Suspect’s Father Had Been on FBI Watchlist and was a “Special Policeman” for Public Works Department

UPDATE: At the end of this article I mentioned the fact that it was reported by CNN that one of his friends said his father told him Mohammed had “gone back home” for a while in Kuwait or Jordan. Now it turns out, a “senior intelligence official” says he was in Jordan for about 7 months last year. We know Jordan is an ally of the U.S. in the fight against Assad via the use of foreign military assets (mercs) and there are many training facilities the CIA runs out of Jordan. Seems like maybe this guy might have been hooked up with the feds more than anyone is letting on.


This is interesting.

According to the New York Times, at one point his father, Youssuf Abdullazeez, was investigated for “possible ties to a foreign terrorist organization.” He was reportedly questioned several years ago and had been included on a terrorist watch list before eventually being removed.

Neighbors told CNN reporters that the suspected gunman’s siblings lived in their parents’ home. Abdulazeez’s father was appointed as a “special policeman” for Chattanooga’s Department of Public Works in March 2005, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported. RT

Here is a copy of the 2005 decree from the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

It’s unclear at this point whether he was investigated by the FBI prior to or after he had been appointed a special police officer.

His father also reportedly told a friend that Mohammed had been out of the country for a little while, went “back home” and stayed overseas.

He only recently returned according to CNN.
