Marine killed in Chattanooga mass shooting was from Wisconsin


One of the four Marines killed in a shooting at a military site in Tennessee Thursday is originally from Wisconsin.

The Burnett County Sentinel reports that U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Carson Holmquist was raised in Granstburg, a few miles from the border with east-central Minnesota.

The 27-year-old was slain at the U.S. Naval Reserve Operation center in Chattanooga after gunman Muhammed Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire, WRCB reports.

According to, Holmquist was married with a 2-year-old son.

KARE 11 reports he most recently called Jacksonville, North Carolina, home, but notes his parents still live in Grantsburg.

His mother told the TV station that military personnel had arrived at their door 7 p.m. informing them of her son's death, and said she and her husband are "just trying to make it through the day."

The Department of Defense has not yet officially confirmed the identities of the four men who lost their lives.

Abdulazeez died after being shot by police.
