A Marine Corps investigation into the deadly July 16th shootings in Chattanooga reveals a U.S. Marine acted fast to shield his young daughter, and possibly saved the life of a colleague.
The Marine Times reports Gunnery Sergeant Camden Meyer was in his office with his six-year old daughter and Sergeant Winfield Thompson when
Muhammad Abdulazeez opened fire at the Lee Highway Recruiting Center.
Meyer covered his daughter's body with his own on the floor and yelled at Thompson to get down.
Meyer told investigators he waited for Abdulazeez to pause to reload.
When he did, Meyer picked up his daughter, told Thompson to run and all three made it out the back door safely.
It's snowing in portions of the Tennessee Valley which means the roads could be slick as you're driving to get your bread and milk.
Snow will end tonight all across our area. After all is said and done, we will see .5" to 1.5" on average for the Tennessee Valley.
Athens Police arrested a man Tuesday morning for kidnapping a one-year-old child.
