MULTIPLE fatalities have been reported in a shooting at a Walmart store on Tuesday night just before the Thanksgiving holiday, said police.
The Chesapeake Police Department is at the scene of the Walmart just off Battlefield Boulevard in Virginia.
Leo Kosinkski of the CPD told WAVY there are several fatalities and injuries at the scene and officers are going through the building.
Police believe that the shooter is dead, said Kosinkski, but that people need to stay clear of the area.
Multiple police and emergency vehicles are outside the store.
Photos shared on social media showed the chaotic scene with multiple cop cars and fire trucks.
“Active shooter at Battlefield Walmart. I was shopping way in the back oblivious to the evacuation from the store,” read the caption of the post.
“Escorted to my car in the parking lot & left. Happy to be home safe. Prayers for all injured.”
