HICKSVILLE - Military recruiting stations across Long Island are increasing security measures following yesterday's deadly shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Authorities say there have been no specific threats on Long Island.
Suffolk and Nassau police have also stepped up patrols around all military facilities.
Rep. Peter King says new safety measures should be looked at, especially for recruiting centers.
"Now it's a different world we live in and I think we have to, at the very least, allow the military in those stations to be armed - and consider bulletproofing and fortifying the stations themselves," says King.
Officials say Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a Kuwaiti-born 24-year-old man, opened fire at two military facilities yesterday, killing four Marines.
