Navy Officer to be charged for firing his ‘personal handgun’ at Chattanooga Terrorist


Lieutenant Commander Tim White has confirmed to the Times Free Press that he used a personal handgun to return fire on Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, who killed four Marines and one Navy sailor in Chattanooga, TN last month. Abdulazeez was was armed with a semi-automatic rifle. It is currently unknown if White’s rounds hit their target.

It’s also been reported that an unidentified Marine opened fire on Abdulazeez, but that story has not yet been confirmed.


According to former congressman and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West, the Navy is moving forward with charging White for discharging a firearm on base. From West’s blog:

Ladies and gents, resulting from the text message I received yesterday, I can confirm that the United States Navy is bringing charges against Lt. Cmdr Timothy White for illegally discharging a firearm on federal property.


The text message asked if it would be possible for Lt.Cmdr White to reach out to me. To wit I replied, affirmative.

Due to West’s contacts as a congressman and his time in the military his report is likely accurate, although no public confirmation of charges has yet been made by the Navy.

The attack left Marines Thomas Sullivan, Skip Wells, David Wyatt, and Carson Holmquist along with Navy Sailor Randall Smith dead.

Abdulazeez is a Kuwati born Muslim who has spent several months in the Middle East prior to committing the attack. However, authorities have not revealed a formal connection between Abdulazeez and any terror organizations.


UPDATE (10:59AM): 

According to – The Navy quickly responded that the West allegations are false.

“Stories of Navy personnel being charged with an offense are not true. There is still a long way to go in reviewing the facts of this tragic incident, but at this time we can confirm no service member has been charged with an offense,” the Navy said in a statement posted to social media.


Now that the NAVY has responded with the update, all of us need to watch this case to make sure they are held to their word. Make your voice known! Support Tim White on social media. Share your thoughts below in the comment section after reading this post.
