The gunman who opened fire at a Virginia Walmart has been identified as Andre Bing, a manager at the store, who killed six co-workers before taking his own life.

A Facebook Live video apparently made by a Walmart employee had been circulating online showing a co-worker that she calls “Andre.”

The young man is seen joking with the workers before he walks away when the woman points her camera at him. It was unclear when the footage was shot.


Watch the video below, which reportedly features the shooter, identified as Andre Marcus Bing, joking with his co-workers on a Facebook Live, on an unknown day previous to the shooting.

The City of Chesapeake tweeted, “We are still communicating with the victims’ families and will release their information as soon as possible. We can confirm that the shooter was 31-year-old Andre Bing of Chesapeake. He was armed with one handgun and had multiple magazines on his person.”

In a statement posted to their Twitter account, Walmart wrote:

We are shocked at this tragic event at our Chesapeake, Virginia store. We’re praying for those impacted, the community and our associates. We’re working closely with law enforcement, and we are focused on supporting our associates.

Walmart also released the following statement to the media:

While details of the tragic incident in our Chesapeake, Virginia store are still emerging, authorities have confirmed multiple fatalities. We are focused on doing everything we can to support our associates and their families at this tine. The alleged shooter has been identified as Andre Bing. We can confirm that he was a Walmart associate. Andre’s position with the company was overnight team lead and he’s been employed with us since 2010. We are thankful for the local first responders and will continue to work with local law enforcement as they continue their investigation.

Death toll rises:

It was reported soon after the shooting that the gunman had killed six people at the Walmart store.  Bing was also found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Wednesday morning, while reporting on live television, Fox News host John Roberts said the network had just received word that two additional victims taken to the hospital after the shooting have now died.

Fox reporter Griff Jenkins tweeted that the death toll has now risen from 7 to 9, including the suspect.

KATU News also confirmed that the number of people shot and killed in the Walmart store has climbed to 8.

Meanwhile, Democrats are renewing their calls for more gun control.

Defeated 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wrote, “Yet another morning with more families grieving loved ones lost to gun violence. Because this cannot continue—we cannot continue as a nation defined by regular mass slaughter—our laws must change and we must change.”

Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) tweeted, “More Americans gunned down — this time at a Walmart in Virginia. I’m devastated for the victims’ families, heartbroken for Chesapeake, and sick of having to say “this time.” Our country cannot continue to live in fear of gun violence. We must do more to keep Americans safe.”

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) tweeted, “Last night’s mass shooting at a Walmart in Chesapeake, VA is awful and senseless. Americans deserve to live without this constant threat of gun violence. Praying for the victims and their families as we mourn the second mass shooting in just a few days.”

Former president Barack Obama demanded, “We can and must do more to reduce gun violence in America.”

  1. We just had 4 kids die by knife and a nut in a car killed a bunch of innocent people. Going to ban cars and knives too. Democrats are nothing but idiots think men can have babies all because the morphidites don’t know if they want to be female or male. I gag listening to idiots

  2. Was he black? Did he lean left, right, up, down? Can we assume it was a hate crime against fellow workers? What’s the deal? Blame the shooter, it was he that pulled the trigger. And this is why my husband always carries, legally

  3. Notice how it is always Democrats calling for gun control. Their idea of gun control is taking the weapons from law abiding citizens and letting criminals & the mentally ill keep their guns.

  4. And they never talk about mental illness or anger issues by all the hate the democrats push. They love to avoid the real elephants in the room. Its to easy to use these tragedies to push their agendas.

  5. What about the daily gun violence in Chicago? Or NYC? Or Los Angeles?!! It isn’t the gun. It’s the shooter! What about knife violence or people who use vehicles? Are we going to ban them too? Wake up!! Criminals are the problem. The lack of consequences is the problem. The soft on crime mentality needs to go away. Don’t let these idiots go! Keep them locked up! We cannot lose our 2A rights no matter what the left claims. Go back to the laws that protect the citizens!

  6. The Democrats have no idea apparently that you can take a life multiple ways, not just by a gun. And it needs a person to use whatever means to take that life. Things don’t just automatically work by it self to kill. People all have a breaking point, or a short attention span for these tragedies to happen. We the people have rights to bare arms, for our own protection. 🇺🇸

  7. It was a pistol that was used. I wonder what, since it wasn’t an ar.. HILLARY, as far as I’m concerned She and her Democrat cronies are responsible for what has happened. They want to disarm our country so the only people that can defend or destroy others is the Cops the Crooks and the Military. The law abiding citizens greaves the loss of life. The SICK Democrats look for a tragedy and make sure it doesn’t go to waste using the tragedy to destroy the Constitution piece by piece. God bless all those who lost their lives and their family’s. A Life is precious sad so many have forgotten and are blinded by hate and politicians lies.

  8. Ayayaya. Here we go again YOU STUPID DEMOCRATS calling for gun control!! STOP putting blame on the fucking guns instead focus on the mentally handicapped shooter or the mental health profile of
    The individual!!! The majority of law abiding (YES LAW ABIDING) citizens are responsible (Including PSYCHIATRIC RESPONSIBLE) with the right to bear arms as stated in the freaking constitution of the United States so just shut the fuck up please!!! can’t stand em!!!

  9. We can take all assault weapon lock them in a safe , bet not one person will die from them guns !!! Now go to the real world black market guns and felon guns are still on the streets people will die !!! If we take all mental cases lock them up or get medical help for them I bet lots of people will be saved it not a gun problem !!! Our problem is we are soft on crime , we ignore mental health problems and the WY we make all kinds soft don’t yell at them , don’t make them take responsibility for action and never making to work for nothing and show no respect for anything is the problem

  10. Here we go Again
    Dems never let a horrific incident go to waste
    I was wondering
    Did you ever see a firearm or any other weapon magically get from wherever it was being held and commit one of there heinous crimes?
    That answer is no
    Until we get to the root causes of these crimes(mental illnesses and No
    Severe penalty for committing them)
    They are never going to subside
    Let’s start in the major cities like Chicago and punish those who break the law
    Probably never going to happen

  11. Another victim of MK Ultra!! Mind control, waiting for the signal to create chaos and another false flag happens. Don’t believe it?? Do some research!! Derek Chauvin was a victim of this.

  12. My husband has bought 3 guns lately, two hand guns and hunting gun. He is in back woods now looking to kill a deer to put in our freezer. Guns can help put food on your table too.

  13. Wait! Gun violence!!! Not sure how to explain that, the gun woke up, got ready and walked itself to Andre Bing’s hand so he can atart shooting, is that what happened? Explain it because I don’t understand how we are blaming the gun and therefore the gun committed violence. The person handling the weapon gets released from jail yet the guns gets the blame!

  14. Press held back again, suppressed the news again, I just saw shooter was a Negro ! Was that the cause ? Or mental illness ? Definitely not the guns fault! As for Hillary STFU ! You’re responsible for About 46 Suicides ? of people that worked for your Clinton Foundation, save me the sobbing BS

  15. 400 Americans every DAY die from Fentanyl, most of which comes in over our ‘controlled, secure’ southern border. The Democrats do NOT CARE about that, only when they can make political hay where they want it.

  16. It amazes me everytime there is a shooting. Dems run and call for banning firearms. Is this what they do, are these shootings planned. I’ve questioned all catastrophes since 9/11. The truth isn’t being told to the American people. I keep researching etc. never giving up. There are very wicked sick individuals out there and many are blind to who they are.
