    My friend in Chattanooga just posted on FB, and now I can't get FB to open and finish reading what she said! Something about highway shootings, as well?

    My local news just reported that it is no longer an active shooter situation but they can't confirm it at this time. About 10 min up the road from me.

    It took place on Amnicola HWY which runs straight through downtown and by Chattanooga State Community College. Apparently the whole thing was shut down. Also Bradley Square Mall (Cleveland about 20 min. away) was on lockdown as well.

    ETA: One of the locations was Amnicola, the second was Lee HWY which is easily accessible via Hwy 153. Local news was not being clear at first.
