The Chattanooga community is coming to grips with a tragedy in their midst, after four Marines are killed by a lone gunman.
FOX News Radio's Gurnal Scott reports:
Governor Bill Haslem summed up the sorrow:
(Haslem) "A horrible day for Chattanooga and a tragic day for all of Tennessee."
The deaths of the servicemen at the hands of shooter Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez has, as Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke put it, rallied an entire city.
(Berke) "Filled with community members who want to do something, because that's who Chattanoogans are."
The city's police department is concentrating on making sure the community is safe, but Police Chief Fred Fletcher says the shooting is no longer in their hands.
(Fletchers) "The investigation is in the entire purview of the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation."
Three people were wounded in the shooting spree.
