NewsChannel 9 obtained the death certificate of Mohammad Abdulazeez Monday afternoon from the Tennessee Department of Health.

In the document, it says Abdulazeez is buried at a Muslim cemetery in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Though, the document did not list a specific address for the cemetery.

Abdulazeez opened fire at the USMC Naval Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway on July 16th, 2015. Four Marines were killed, one Sailor was mortally wounded.

After exchanging gunfire with six Chattanooga Police officers, Abdulazeez died at the scene.

In our photo gallery is a picture of the death certificate. While death certificates are public record, NewsChannel 9 chose to redact the address of the Abdulazeez family home in Hixson, Tennessee, as well as his social security number and the license number of the doctor who signed it.
