Police spokesman gives update on Walmart shooting

Police say “multiple people are dead” after a gunman opened fire at a Walmart store in Chesapeake, Virginia, late at night.

More than 40 emergency vehicles were rushed to the scene on Battlefield Boulevard after a 911 call was made just minutes after 10:10 pm local time on Tuesday.

A police spokesman says officers are still searching the scene of the shooting but believe one of the perpetrators is now dead.

When asked how many victims were involved, a police spokesman said a short while ago many people were injured and “less than 10 dead”.

Louise Lucas, a Virginia senator, said the Walmart that was attacked fell in her constituency, and she was “heartbroken” by the news coming out of Chesapeake.

“I am absolutely heartbroken that tonight was America’s latest mass shooting at a Walmart in my district in Chesapeake, Virginia,” he wrote on Twitter.

“I will not rest until we find a solution to end this epidemic of gun violence in our country that has taken so many lives.”
