By Silvia AscarelliMarketWatch Pulse

Four Marines and the lone gunman have died and two other people were wounded in shootings at two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., the Associated Press reported. The five died at the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center, and a separate shooting, apparently from a car, was at the Armed Forces Career Center 7 miles away. The two wounded are a soldier and a police officer, the AP said. Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, called the shootings an "act of domestic terrorism," the AP said, but an FBI official said the motive was still under investigation. Reuters, citing the FBI, reported that the shooter is believed to have acted alone. There is no other information available yet about the shooter or the victims.
