On July 16, 2015, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on two military facilities in Chattanooga. The first location was a recruitment center where one Marine officer was wounded.

Abdulazeez then traveled to a U.S. Navy Reserve center where he killed four Marines before he was killed by police. A sailor was also wounded there and later died, bringing the death toll from the incident to five.

Here & Now’s Alex Ashlock went to Chattanooga to find out how the mass shooting has affected the city and a Marine who survived it.
