CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — Police say six people have been killed after a shooter opened fire at a Walmart in Virginia.
It was second high-profile mass shooting in a handful of days.
Assailant is also dead
The assailant is also dead. Officer Leo Kosinski said early Wednesday that the store in Chesapeake was now safe. The shooting comes after a person opened fire at a gay nightclub in Colorado late Saturday, killing five people and wounding 17.
Earlier in the year, the country was shaken by the deaths of 21 when a gunman stormed an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
