A Muslim gunman associated with ISIS unleashed a barrage of gunfire at two military facilities Thursday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, killing at least four Marines and wounding a soldier and a police officer, officials told CBS News. The terrorist also was killed.

A confirmed ISIS account warned of the attack beforehand, posting the hashtag #Chattanooga on his Twitter account — and also suggesting further attacks in other cities.

Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke said five people died in all, including the gunman. Two law enforcement sources told CBS News that the shooting suspect was identified as Muhammad Youssef  Abdulazeez, a 24-year old Kuwaiti native.

And once again, as in Fort Hood, our troops were sitting ducks — thanks to the “gun-free zone” rule that President Bill Clinton put in place. GOP candidate Donald Trump has promised to reverse that ban should he be elected.

U.S. Attorney Bill Killian said officials were treating the attacks as an “act of domestic terrorism,” though FBI Special Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold said authorities were still investigating a motive.

A confirmed ISIS supporter Tweeted right as the attack began:

And the same account also appeared to threaten attacks on Berlin, Germany and Amsterdam, Holland, adding “SOON“…

For months the Islamic State has been exhorting their Muslims followers to target and kill US military personnel. Last October, an Army intelligence bulletin is warned U.S. military personnel to be vigilant after Islamic State militants called on supporters to scour social media for addresses of their family members – and to “show up [at their homes] and slaughter them.”

After the jihad attack on the Pamela Geller event in Garland, Texas in May, military bases across the United States were placed on higher alert for domestic terror attacks, in response to a surge in threatening chatter from ISIS and its sympathizers. “It is the highest level of security since the tenth anniversary of September 11,” notes Fox 13 News in Tampa Bay, home of MacDill Air Force Base.

Officials told CBS News correspondent David Marin that four U.S. Marines were among the dead and another was injured. The U.S. Marines released a statement saying that the injured Marine was a recruiter who was treated and released after sustaining a wound to the leg.

A police officer also was shot in the ankle and is expected to be ok.

A facility 7 miles away on Old Lee Highway also was attacked. Brian Lepley, a spokesman with the U.S. Army Recruiting Command in Fort Knox, Kentucky, said his recruiters there were told by law enforcement that the shooter was in a car, stopped in front of the facility, shot at the building and drove off.

Now get ready for liberals to twist themselves into pretzels to try and convince us that this was an “isolated” act unrelated to Islam or Muslims — or that it is all about the need for “gun control,” as they have with the illegal alien who murdered Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

Or as this Tweeter so succinctly put it:
