CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — The latest on the Chattanooga shootings at two military facilities (all times local):

11:10 a.m.

Hundreds of people have gathered outside a military recruiting office where a shooting rampage began four days ago.

A makeshift memorial of American flags and balloons is growing. Many people carried American flags and some had Confederate battle flags outside the military recruiting office Monday. The windows, several of which were pocked with bullet holes after the shooting, have been covered with plywood.

About seven miles away, yellow police tape still blocked access to the Marine-Navy facility where the killings happened. Law enforcement vehicles were parked nearby with lights flashing.

Authorities say a 24-year-old Kuwait-born man attacked the two facilities, killing four Marines and a sailor. Authorities have not released a motive.
