The facility is one of two locations where U.S. service members were fatally shot Thursday.
Manning — who starred at the University of Tennessee before his legendary NFL career began — spent time with military personnel and police officers at the reserve center, WRCB reported.
After his visit, Chattanooga Police posted a photo on social media with the message, "Thank you for stopping by and for your support Peyton Manning."

Dozens of commenters on the police's Facebook page called Manning a "class act" for taking the time with our fellow citizens in uniform.
