Late Night Ramapge Sees Many Casualties Around Virginia Walmart

Police forces recently responded to a call about a shooting in a Chesapeake, Virginia area Walmart.

As explained by one local news outlet, WAVY, law enforcement officials on the scene just off Battlefield Blvd. have officially confirmed that there has been multiple injuries and a few fatalities, while also warning people to stay away from the area until further notice.

Police dispatchers were able to confirm that a report came in at just after 10 p.m. local time, reporting that there had been gunshots fired inside of a local Walmart store located at 1521 Sam’s Circle.

While speaking on behalf of the Chesapeake Police Department, Leo Kosinski stated to WAVY that most people think the alleged shooter is counted amongst the dead — however they have not yet actually confirmed the statement themselves. Details concerning the total number of fatalities and the overall extend of the various injuries has not yet been made public.

Video evidence taken at the scene of the shooting highlighted a massive police presence in and around the store as officers tried to vacate shoppers from the building and continue to evaluate the onging situation.

One man, who made the claim to have been inside the store at the time of the gunshots ringing out, posted a video in which he stated that it was one of the managers for the store that was responsible for the attack.

Louise Lucas, a Democratic State Senator, made sure to not let a tragedy go to waste as she pivoted the spotlight from the shooting into a political call for stricter gun control policies, posting, “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.”

An additional update from WAVY News seemed to state that police forces thought that there were less than ten total fatalities and eventually confirmed that the shooter was, actually, one of those marked deceased —  however they did not opt to hand out any additional information at all.
