Six Killed As ‘Manager’ Goes On Shooting Rampage In Virginia Walmart

At least six people were killed in a shooting rampage at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia. One employee posted a video on social media and explained what happened, indicating a store manager was the shooter. 

Chesapeake City Police Department arrived at the Walmart Supercenter around 2215 ET after receiving reports of a shooter inside the store. When first responders arrived, they found multiple people shot. 

In a tweet early Wednesday, Chesapeake City officials confirmed seven people died, including the shooter. 

Reuters said police have yet to release the shooter’s identity, but at least one employee posted a Facebook Live video last night about what happened. He said:

“It was wild. It was a manager – one of the managers.” 

Social media users allege this is the shooter. 

The employee, streaming live on Facebook in the Walmart parking lot, said he barely escaped. He said the store manager “killed the girl in there and everything. He came in and started spraying. I’m sorry for the victims.” 

Public information officer Leo Kosinski said the shooter didn’t fire at police to the best of his knowledge. He said, “I believe the shooting stopped when the police arrived.”

“A news conference in response to the Walmart active shooter will be held at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, November 23 at the Public Safety Operations Center, 2130 S Military Hwy,” Chesapeake City officials tweeted.  

Walmart stated that it was “shocked” at the violence and was working with local law enforcement to assist in the investigation.
