"We can confirm that four DoD (Defense Department) service members were tragically killed and one wounded in two separate shootings in Chattanooga, Tennessee today," the Pentagon said in a statement.

It said the shootings took place at a Network Operations Support Center operated by the U.S. Navy and at an armed forces recruiting center. The U.S. Marine Corps said in a tweet that the four slain personnel were Marines.
