POTUS said he was briefed by FBI director and White House team on Chatonooga shooting. We don't yet know all details, POTUS said. The attacker appears to be a lone gunman, he said.

POTUS said they've identified a name, but didn't disclose it. POTUS said he's in contact with DOD. FBI is taking lead in investigation along with local law enforcement, POTUS said.

POTUS said his main message is "deepest sympathies to the American people" and the death of four Marines is "heartbreaking." POTUS asked all Americans to pray for families of victims, who are still in process of being contacted.
