Mourners continue to gather at one of the sites in Chattanooga where an attacker opened fire, killing at least four US Marines.

Diondra Pointer, a U.S. Army veteran, came Friday morning to plant flags near the military recruitment station where some of the shootings took place.

"You think you're safe but this war has spilled over into our communities. None of us are safe, are we?" she said. "My heart really hurts. It's sad. These were fathers and brothers and sons of somebody. I just wanted to pay my respects."
