New, Troubled Profile of Chattanooga Shooter Emerges

He was a man with serious mental illness, depressed and conflicted, a devout Muslim who regularly violated his faith by smoking pot and drinking heavily, but not anti-American or connected to ISIS. That is the portrait the family of 24-year-old Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez has painted for FBI agents trying to learn why he went on a spree of violence last week that resulted in the deaths of five uniformed members of the military in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Law enforcement officials told ABC News the family has been fully cooperating in the investigation. ABC’s Ryan Burrow joined us to discuss.
