Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning met with military personnel and Chattanooga police officers Saturday night at the Naval Marine Corps Reserve Center where four U.S. Marines were shot dead last week.

Chattanooga policetweeted a photo of Manning, who played football for the University of Tennessee, with an officer saying, “Thank you for stopping by and for your support Peyton Manning.”

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old Kuwaiti-born gunman, allegedly opened fire on a military recruiting station Thursday, before going to the reserve center and killing four Marines.

A fifth victim, a 26-year-old Navy sailor, died Saturday from injuries he sustained in the attack. A Marine and a Chattanooga police officer also remain hospitalized.

The attack, which ended when Abdulazeez was fatally shot by police, is being described as a domestic act of terrorism and is still under investigation.
