Will the shooting change life for Chattanooga Muslims?

U.S. Navy Petty Officer Randall Smith died Saturday from wounds sustained when gunman Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez shot and killed four U.S. Marines and wounded two others and a Chattanooga police officer at the Naval Operational Support Center on Amnicola Highway shortly after firing into the Armed Forces Career Center on Lee Highway.

For more than 40 years - despite the terror of 9/11 and the mass shooting at Fort Hood and bombing of the Boston Marathon - Muslims in Chattanooga have lived at peace with their neighbors.

There was no hate mail or death threats, no picketing or bullying.

The worst Bassam Issa can remember is a stolen lawn mower.

"They are Americans. This is their country, and this is their city," said Issa, who is president of the Islamic Center of Greater Chattanooga.

While other cities, even as close as Murfreesboro, Tenn., were fighting the erection of mosques and warning of radical Islam, Issa said Chattanooga was quiet.
