Tenn. Guard recruiters returning soon to storefront offices

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -

State officials hope to have Tennessee National Guard recruiters back in their storefront offices in Chattanooga and across the state in coming days.
    
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/1MQOBdN ) reports final touches on security upgrades are being made in response to a deadly attack in July. National Guard recruiters have been working out of armories since July.
    
The temporary relocation of the seven offices was prompted by 24-year-old Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez's Chattanooga shooting rampage. Abdulazeez first shot at a U.S. military recruiting office, located next door to a state National Guard office in a strip mall.
    
The gunman then drove to a U.S. Naval Reserve Center, where he killed four Marines and fatally injured a Navy petty officer before he was shot to death during a confrontation with Chattanooga police.
