Chattanooga shooting suspect briefly worked at Ohio nuclear power plant

The alleged shooter who killed four Marines in Chattanooga briefly worked at a nuclear power plant prior to the shooting, according to a spokesman for the plant.

Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez was a conditional employee at the Perry Nuclear Power Plant in Ohio but the job only lasted 10 days.

Abdulazeez, who graduated from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga with an engineering degree in 2012, worked at the plant in late May 2013.

Todd Schneider, a spokesman for FirstEnergy, which runs the plant, told ABC News that he "was never granted unescorted access and never entered the secured area of the plant."
