Multiple people were killed by a gunman at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia on Tuesday night, local police said, in an incident which comes just three days after another high profile mass shooting incident which left five dead at an LGBTQ club in Colorado.
An exact count of the number of people killed in the incident was not revealed but Chesapeake police spokesperson Leo Kosinski told the press the number was “less than 10, right now.”
Police believe there was one shooter who was dead by the time they arrived on the scene but Kosinski could not confirm if the shooter had taken their own life.
After arriving at the scene, police found “multiple fatalities” and several injured people at the store.
This is a developing story.
