- Details are still emerging about the shootings in two military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but one thing seems pretty clear according to the name of the shooter.
Five people — including four Marines and the sole gunman — are dead following shootings at two separate military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
A police officer was also wounded and suffered non-life threatening injuries.
The suspected shooter has been ID’d as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.
Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke confirmed the five deaths at a news conference Thursday. The U.S. attorney in Tennessee said this will be investigated as an act of domestic terrorism.
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge said that it is “highly unusual” for the FBI to already be taking the lead in the investigation and have several hundred agents heading to the scene.
Herridge said officials confirmed the attacker was not a military member and did not have known ties to the victims.
The shooting began at around 11 a.m. at U.S. Naval Recruiting on Lee Highway, where the suspect is believed to have fired in rapid succession for a period of minutes, then sped away in a silver Mustang.
