Authorities have named Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Kuwait as the suspect killed in Thursday’s attack on a recruitment center in Tennessee.

Abdulazeez is cited via the Associated Press as living in Hixson, Tennessee, a few miles away from Chattanooga. The suspect was killed by police following two attacks on military facilities in the city. Authorities have swarmed his home and arrested two unidentified females.

NBC news reported that the Abdulazeez is a naturalized citizen. Hamilton County Jail records show that he was arrested in April for a drunk driving charge.

Four U.S. Marines were killed and a Chattanooga Police officer was injured.
