Our hearts go out to the four Marines who were killed yesterday at a reserve center in Chattanooga, Tennessee and their grieving families. Their names have not been formally released, but according to state officials one victim was Thomas Sullivan who survived two tours in Iraq. Three others were injured in the hail of gunfire.
The suspected gunman, identified as Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, was also killed.
U.S. Attorney Bill Killian called the shooting an “act of domestic terrorism” and pledged the resources of the FBI and Department of Homeland Security for the investigation.
