4 Killed in Shootings at Two US Military Facilities

Four U.S. military personnel were killed in shootings Thursday at two military facilities in the southern state of Tennessee.

Officials said the gunman who opened fire at the two facilities was also killed in the incident. Several other people were injured, including a police officer.

Law enforcement sources said the shooter had been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. No other information about him was available.

Authorities said the gunman opened fire in a drive-by shooting at a military recruiting center at a shopping mall in Chattanooga where five branches of the military have adjoining offices. The Department of Defense said a Marine recruiter suffered a leg wound in the attack; he was treated at a hospital and released, according to Marine Corps officials. READ MORE OF THIS STORY
