Last Words From Slain Marine to Girlfriend: 'ACTIVE SHOOTER'

Lance Cpl. Squire Wells, who was known as Skip, was swapping text messages Thursday with his girlfriend of 2 ½ years, excited that she had booked a flight to visit him in Chattanooga after months apart. The last text message, his girlfriend Caroline Dove, received from Well was, "ACTIVE SHOOTER." She thought he was kidding. It would not be until Friday that she learned his fate. The two met at Georgia Southern University, but he soon followed in his family footsteps and enlisted. Dove said, His grandfather had been in the Air Force, and his grandmother and mother served in the Navy.
