KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Mourners are expected to continue paying their respects to a metro Atlanta Marine who was fatally shot in attacks on military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Visitation for 21-year-old Lance Cpl. Squire "Skip" Wells is scheduled to continue Saturday at the Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Funeral Home in Kennesaw from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Mourners began paying their respects to Wells on Friday afternoon, and his funeral is set for 2 p.m. Sunday at the First Baptist Church of Woodstock.
