Extra! Shooting In Chattanooga, Nightmare For City

"Nightmare For Our City" reads Friday's front page of the Chattanooga Times Free Press from the Tennessee city of 173,000 after Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old man, killed four Marines and wounded two other people in a shooting at a military recruitment center and a reserve center.

Abdulazeez was killed in a shootout with local police after the Thursday morning attack, and hundreds of federal agents later swarmed to the scene to secure the area. Authorities have labeled the attack an "act of domestic terrorism" and opened a terrorism investigation.

According to federal officials, Abdulazeez was not previously under surveillance or known to the authorities for any terrorist activity. Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam called Chattanooga "a great city with a broken heart", and locals held vigils and memorials for the victims.
