Walmart shooting: Manager opens fire on employees in Virginia

A Walmart executive opened fire on co-workers who had gathered in the cafeteria of a Virginia store, a witness said Wednesday. Six people were killed in the country’s second high-profile mass shooting in a handful of days.

The gunman, who apparently killed himself, was dead when police found him, Chesapeake Police Chief Mark G. Solesky said. There was no clear motive for the shooting, as a result of which four people also ended up in hospital.

The store was busy Tuesday night just before the attack with people stocking up for Thanksgiving, a customer told a local TV station.
