A most shocking incident takes place earlier today in Tennessee Navy facility that shook the entire area. An attack happened at the Army Recruiting Center on Lee Highway and the Naval and Marine Reserve Center at the Chattanooga Riverpark on Amnicola Highway.
Four Marines were supposedly killed in this disastrous event in the Navy training center. Most probably it is saying that there were two attacks and one of attack at area military facilities happened closely at the same time and just seven miles apart.
Sources are saying that a single shooter was involved as described by witnesses but it was not confirmed yet. The scene was described as a white man driving a silver Ford Mustang convertible start firing shots at about 10:45 in the morning at the Lee Highway recruiting center. Due to this a police chase starts to the Amnicola Highway location where more shots were fired.
The shootings took place was deadly and involved many fatalities. The shooter stopped in front of the recruiting facility fire at the building and drove off.
According to the Chattanooga Press Statements it is clear that:
The Marines were slaughtered by a marksman who released a burst of fire at a Naval Reserves Operations Center on Amnicola Highway but the original incident starts earlier.
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam called the condition a disaster and shocking. Due to these activities immediately the Governor’s mansion with many other complex facilities in the area was lockdown.
Some of the Marines were supposedly shot but because of the situation there names were not directly released and government officials did not approve the statement clearly.
Eyewitnesses at both the scenes Amnicola and Lee Highway places stated hearing multiple gunshots in each area. Presently after the shooting blue markers scattered the ground outside the recruiting station on Lee Highway where all of this happened and police totally jammed off Amnicola Highway to traffic.
It seems that after the police have secured the area, the situation has become more stable. This is a very dreadful situation. People are very worried about what’s going on. At this time government need to figure out how to handle it.
The incident gets to mind us the 2009 shooting attack at the Fort Hoodarmy base when Palestinian American Army Major Nidal Hasan released a deadly shooting charge. A more clear report clearing all the facts is yet to be released.
