NEW YORK (AP) - Police officials have increased patrols near military recruiting stations in New York City after four Marines were killed in Tennessee.

The NYPD says additional officers are being sent to the recruitment stations and other sensitive locations across the city.

The announcement comes in the wake of Thursday’s shooting at a recruiting center in Chattanooga that left four Marines dead. The attacker was also killed.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller says the department’s response is routine. He says there have been no specific threats in New York.

Federal authorities have not yet identified a motive for the shooting but said they are investigating the possibility it was an act of terrorism.

Miller says the NYPD has been in regular contact with authorities in Tennessee and the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.
