Tennessee Suspect's Family Sees Depression, Shame Behind Rampage

A source close the family of Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez says, the family believes deep depression and shame over an drunken driving charge may have led him to go on a rampage in which five U.S. servicemen died last week. In seeking to understand what motivated last Thursday's fatal shooting in Tennessee, relatives of the 24-year-old engineer reportedly have pointed to what they say was a tragic combination of factors. Substance abuse combined with long-standing psychological issues appears to have stirred up intense religious guilt, driving Abdulazeez to find forgiveness in a violent outburst, they believe.
