Tennessee suspect texted friend link to Islamic verse before attack

U.S. flag flies alongside a sign in honor of the four Marines killed in Chattanooga, TennesseeBy Richard Valdmanis CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Reuters) – Hours before the Tennessee shooting that killed five U.S. servicemen, the suspected gunman texted his close friend a link to a long Islamic verse that included the line: "Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, then I have declared war against him." The friend, who requested anonymity, showed the text message to Reuters on Saturday. The suspect, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old Kuwaiti-born naturalized U.S. citizen, was killed in a gunfight with police. Abdulazeez's friends said he returned from a trip to Jordan in 2014 concerned about conflicts in the Middle East and the reluctance of the United States and other countries to intervene.
