Five servicemen were killed when a lone Muslim gunman opened fire. One serviceman and one police man were wounded.
The attacker, Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, first fired on the recruiting center without hitting anyone. A few minutes later he attacked a Navy and Marine Corps office with deadly results.

WRCB-TV reported on the re-opening of the recruiting center.
“”I’m re-enlisting back into the military. I was in the Army National Guard,” says David Hallman. “I joined at 17. And I got out when my daughter was being born. And so I’ve gotten all my paperwork together now that they are starting to re-enlist prior service and I’m going back into the military.”
“He says he did not think twice about his decision.
“”We’ve all lost brothers, no matter what branch of service they were in. We’re all fighting for the same cause and so I mean there is a lot of sadness in it but I’m excited because now I have everything that I need to be able to go back into the military and be able to go back to serving my country,” says Hallman.”
