A Muslim psychiatrist says he and others in Chattanooga’s Muslim community are mourning the deaths of four Marines fatally shot by a man who attended the local mosque.

Pakastani-born Dr. Mohsin Ali told more than 1,000 mourners gathered at a Friday evening memorial service that the Muslim community is appalled by the actions of Muhammad Abdulazeez.

Referring to Abdulazeez as “the murderer,” Ali called the shooting “cowardly and cruel.”
