Ugh, shouldn't they have fired him on a Friday?

Probably lost his pension and let it rip.

A target rich environment it sounds like. Takes minutes for help to arrive when you only have seconds to respond.

City building. hmm... Another shooter in a gun free zone is able to kill a lot of people with no resistance. Then, the police come after all those innocents are dead to kill the shooter. But. the damage was done, in a gun free zone.

When will this gun free zone crap end?

My heart goes out to everyone involved in this tragedy. But it does need to be said, because life could have been saved here:

When every second counts, the police are minutes away.

When are we going to realize that even when the Bible said to fight fire with fire, this is an example of exactly what it is talking about? Gun free zones simply don't work.

Was watching the news, and they mentioned that Sentara Hospital(where victims were taken) had mass casualty drills last week.

Shooters name is circulating online - certainly wont mention it here as it could be wrong.

It must be time for gun laws to be relaxed to enable people to have weapons to defend themselves. I saw that people were hiding under desks. They should have been in position, with cover and with a firearm ready to blow the guy away if he entered the room.

They always have the crisis drills just beforehand.

Also, watch for the Feds to get involved; which is another red flag.

Not a gun-free zone in Virginia. They have the Dillon rule, can carry anywhere except schools and courthouses.

So what are the odds that the shooter was "troubled" and being treated for mental issues of some kind?
Seems every one of these assholes is taking an antidepressant of one kind or another.
You win again big pharma.

The VB police just had a presser. Confirmed now 12 dead victims, and 4 injured being treated in hospital.
On of the 12 dead victims was discovered in a car outside the building.

The shooter was taken down during a long gun battle with LEO on scene.

The shooter was immediately given medical assistance by LEO after being taken down. He was transferred to EMS personnel for treatment for his wounds,. yet succumbed to his injuries and died on the way to hospital.

Shooter was using a .45 cal handgun, affixed with a suppressor and many extended magazines.

The shooter injured or killed his victims on 3 floors of the building, and repeatedly reloaded along the way with multiple magazines before LEO arrived on scene.

The police are withholding the shooters name until next of kin can be contacted to inform them of the situation. However, they stated that when they release the name, it will only be spoke by them ONCE and once only. The reason being they wanted the reporting to concentrate upon the victims and their families in this case and not the shooter.

Federal forensic investigators on scene for the expertise they can provide in this case.




The shooter was a current public employee in that building, and had approved access.
