ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: President Barack Obama said on Thursday that U.S. officials would be thorough and prompt about getting answers after a suspected gunman opened fire at two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, killing four Marines. Obama expressed his condolences to the victims' families. The suspected gunman was fatally shot in the incident. Four U.S. Marines were killed on Thursday by a suspected gunman who opened fire at two military offices in Chattanooga, Tennessee, before being fatally shot in an attack officials called a brazen, brutal act of domestic terrorism. The FBI named the suspect as Muhammod Youssuf Abdulazeez and said he was 24 years old. NBC reported he was a naturalized American born in Kuwait. U.S. officials said law enforcement authorities are investigating whether he was inspired by Islamic State or a similar militant group. No official motive has yet been given.
