Members of the community left trinkets at a makeshift memorial on July 17, in front of the Armed Forces Career Center off of Lee Highway where a shooting spree began leading to the death of four Marines in Chattanooga.

The group was there dancing all morning to help collect donated items for Chattanooga Police Officer Dennis Pedigo, who was injured in the July, 16, shootings at the Naval Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway which left six dead, including the shooter.

Sadly, when mass murder occurs so publicly, so unexpectedly, so indiscriminately, it's the killers' names that seem to linger.
