This is where the deadly attack began, leaving the Armed Forces Career Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee sprayed with bullets. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED WITNESS SAYING: "We heard a loud pop then there was a pause so that caused us... we went to the window to see what was going on and when we went to the window there was a guy in a silver Mustang convertible and he was just unloading a large gun on the Naval Recruiting Office." The FBI has named the suspect as Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez but said it was too early to speculate a motive. The shooting targeted this office and a Navy & Marine Corps Reserve Center seven miles away. At that location officials say Abdulazeez was fatally shot. Several people were also injured. At the White House President Barack Obama expressed his condolences for the victims and their families. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA SAYING: "It is a heartbreaking circumstance for these individuals who served our country with great valor to be killed in this fashion." Back in Tennessee, the community was left reeling in pain, trying to come together after an attack that officials called a brazen, brutal act of domestic terrorism.
