Walmart Employee Opened Fire In Store, Killing At Least Six


On Tuesday, at least six people were reported dead after the store manager opened fire inside a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia.

According to officials, the shootings occurred within an hour of the store's scheduled closing time.

Police have searched the store to find any additional victims or those hiding.

CNN reported that the gunman entered the break room and opened fire on other employees before turning the gun on himself.

Chesapeake Police Chief Mark Solesky confirmed that the gunman died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  However, the shooter's identity has not been released because his family has not been notified.

A spokesperson for Sentara Healthcare said five people were receiving treatment at the Sentara General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.  The state of their condition was not immediately known.

Customers are being asked to stay away from the store during the investigation.

The Chesapeake Conference Center has been set up as a reunification center for those in the store.  Only immediate family and emergency contacts will be allowed in the center.

Walmart said it was shocked by what happened in one of its stores.

"We're praying for those impacted, the community, and our associates.  We're working closely with law enforcement, and we are focused on supporting our associates," the company said.
