Chattanooga police have released the identities of the four adult victims in the Christmas-morning shootings outside of Club Fathom downtown, including an 18-year-old admitted to the hospital.

Juane Joseph suffered a gunshot wound in his upper left leg and was admitted to a local hospital, Chattanooga police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary said.

Thomas Armstrong, 18, was shot in the left knee, while Keontae Howard, 29, was shot in the left shoulder and Charquell Appling,19, was shot in the right thigh, Weary said.

None of the injuries were considered life-threatening.

Five juveniles were also shot outside of Club Fathom. Two were admitted to the hospital with what police believed to be non-life threatening injuries, Weary said.

I'm sure they will recover in time to vote for Obama in November.

What's wrong riverman? Still shocked that the Cain train ran off its rails? Or are you ticked that Newt turned out to be the Lefts most reliable influence peddler, i.e. Fannie and Freddie? Ayn Rands' groupie, Doctor Ron doesn't cast a big enough net to include others, besides gays and blacks, that you have a distaste for? What about Mitt, after all, didn't Obama model his health care reform after the Romney plan? Bachman's nelly husband too light in the loafers for you? I can't believe you are still bothered that blacks have the right to vote.

Just stating the facts ceeweed. From looking at the names I would wager all these fine, upstanding citizens are blacks. Obama got 95% of the black vote, so there is a high probability they will all vote for Barry. Sorry if you are embarrassed that Dems have to get 90% of the black parasite vote to win.

Riverman, your racism astounds. Last time I checked there were plenty of white people in rural counties and in Chattanooga receiving government aid. Given that in Tennessee most people vote Republican, does it embarrass you that Republicans need the white parasite vote to win? See, your silly argument makes no sense.

Well memphisexile, have to give you credit for leaving ground zero of the black parasite vote in Tennessee, that cesspool that is Memphis. You must have gone to Tiger High as it is evident you are not familiar with statistical analysis. See there are more white people in Tennessee than black, but there is a higher percentage of black people on welfare.

Riverman, I don't think race has anything to do with anything here. I don't understand why some people always bring politics into everything. I live in Chattanooga, I'm white and I will be voting for Obama again, but that has nothing to do with this story. Maybe part of the reason some have a harder chance of getting out of these situations is because of racist people like you that won't give them the chance. How about you stop being racist and contribute to help fight these problems so you won't have anything to complain about.

The color of the vote is the least of the problem. It's the people that believe you owe them some great debt because they do not have what you have worked for.

Yeah you're right jdchatt, it's never black people's fault, always racism. After 50 years can't you come up with something new?
