Police in Chesapeake Virginia advised that at 10:12 pm Thursday night they received a call for shots fired at Walmart. Upon arriving the scene was chaotic and the shooting had stopped but the horror was just beginning. It’s still unclear just how many people were killed or injured in the shooting, but police say there are multiple of both but do not believe there are more than ten fatalities. They believe the shooter is among the deceased and police believe there was a sole shooter. At this time police are advising that all victims were found inside the building with the exception of one who was found outside the store.
Virginia state Sen. Louise Lucas, who represents that portion of Chesapeake, shared a statement on Tuesday night, saying “I am absolutely heartbroken that America’s latest mass shooting took place in a Walmart in my district in Chesapeake, Virginia tonight. I will not rest until we find the solutions to end this gun violence epidemic in our country that has taken so many lives.”
