Many have been killed and others injured following a shooting at a Virginia Walmart on Tuesday night.

Police said officers responded to a report of a shooting at the Walmart on Sam’s Circle around 10:15 p.m. and as soon as they arrived, they found evidence of a shooting.

Chesapeake police spokesman Leo Kosinski said in a briefing that over 35 to 40 minutes, officers found multiple dead bodies.

Police believe there was one shooter, who is dead, he said. They believe that the shooting had stopped when police arrived, Kosinski said. He did not have a number of dead, but said it was “less than 10, right now.”

The Virginia shooting comes three days after a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Colorado, killing five people and wounding 17. That shooter was arrested after patrons at the club tackled him and beat him. The shootings come in a year when the country was shaken by the deaths of 21 in a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Tuesday’s shooting is coming after a shooting at a Walmart in 2019, when a gunman targeting Mexicans shot inside a store in El Paso. About 22 people were killed.
