Chesapeake police say the suspect behind a mass shooting at a Walmart just off Battlefield Blvd. is dead.

It’s still unclear just how many people were killed or injured in the shooting, but police say there are multiple of both. A police spokesperson told WAVY’s Michelle Wolf that no more than 10 people have died.

Police are still going through the building and people are asked to steer clear. The call reporting the shooting came in at 10:12 p.m. Tuesday. The Walmart supercenter was open to the public at the time.

There’s still a massive police response outside of the store, with more than 40 emergency vehicles outside. WAVY is still working to learn more.

WAVY’s crew is being kept away from getting the store at the moment. Police are urging the public to stay away. If you’re looking for information or for a loved one who works or was at the store, go to the Chesapeake Conference Center.

Employees also gathered at the nearby Sam’s Club, where attendance was being taken. A night shift employee who said spoke with WAVY’s Brett Hall said “thank goodness I showed up late.”

This story is developing.
