Four Marines were killed on July 16 in a shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Gunshots were fired at a military recruiting center and a Navy Reserve center in different parts of Chattanooga, Tennessee, late Thursday morning, officials and witnesses said.
Witnesses said a man sprayed bullets at the glass doors of a military recruiting center at a strip mall on Lee Highway, and the U.S. Navy tweeted Thursday that a shooting happened at a separate location -- the Navy Reserve center on Amnicola Highway. The two sites are 7½ miles apart.
