Chattanooga, Tennessee Shooting Leaves Several Dead & Officials Are Treating It "As An Act Of Domestic Terrorism"

GOLETA, CA - JANUARY 31: Television news trucks line up to report live outside a United States Postal Service mail facility where a former part-time postal worker opened fire the night before on January 31, 2006 in Goleta, California. The 44-year-old unnamed woman killed five people, critically wounded another and then committed suicide at the facility on January 30. The mid-1980s and early 1990s saw a series of deadly shootings in Postal Service facilities including one in which a letter carrier killed 14 people in Edmond, Oklahoma before committing suicide himself. The Goleta incident is one of the deadliest since that time. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

On Thursday morning, an active shooter opened fire Chattanooga, Tennessee's Naval Reserve Center and another military facility in Chattanooga. Four people were killed in the shooting, and the gunman is also dead. A police officer was also injured in the gunfire. The nearby Chattanooga State Community College was also on lockdown during Thursday afternoon, writing on its website that there was an active shooter nearby. Mayor Andy Berke told press it was a "horrific incident in our community," and a no-fly zone over Chattanooga was enforced until the threat passed.

"We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism," said U.S. Attorney Bill Killian in a 3 p.m. press conference. Authorities noted that they believe the incident to be a single-shooter situation, and have not uncovered a motive.
