US Navy looking at security changes after Chattanooga shooting that killed 4 Marines, 1 sailor


CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee — The U.S. Navy is looking into possible security changes after the July 16 slaying of four Marines and a sailor at Chattanooga's U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center.

Capt. Jack Hanzlik, Fleet Forces Command spokesman, told the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/1Vlr9cj ) the Navy is looking at things like the site's layout and the policies that govern how personnel respond to such attacks.

It also will look at how well the Navy communicated with law enforcement and medical responders, and how survivors and victims were supported during and after the attack.

Hanzlik said any recommended changes could impact similar facilities throughout the Navy.

The investigation is being conducted by a 20-person team led by Rear Adm. Frank Morneau. The team's first report should be finished by the end of September.
