CHATTANOOGA - A gunman unleashed a barrage of gunfire at two military facilities in Tennessee, killing four Marines and wounding two other service members and a police officer

24-year-old Muhammad Yousaf Abdulaziz, shooting suspect was also killed. According to a U.S. law enforcement source, suspect was born in Kuwait and came to the United States in 1996.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold said,"We're going to do an intense look at him to see what his connections are," We'll look at his friends, family, associates -- anybody who is associated with him to determine the cause or the reason why he conducted this attack."

U.S. Attorney Bill Killian said officials were treating the attacks as an "act of domestic terrorism".

President Barack Obama ordered investigation of this sad demise. He said that He is in contact with Pentagon to make sure military installations are being vigilant.

In a statement, Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren addressed security measures at recruiting facilities around the country:  
                                        "We have our recruiting centers set up in places easily accessible to the public. For example, a strip mall. So security there is not what you'd see at a Ft. Bragg, a Norfolk Naval Air Station or at Quantico. So this is something we have to face. Security is not as extensive as it would be at a major installation. This is because we have to be in contact with the American public. We're continuing to look into this incident, working very closely with both federal and local law enforcement agencies to determine exactly what happened and if we need to make any adjustments."
