VIRGINIA: Seven people have been killed including a shooter and others injured in a shooting at Walmart Store in Chesapeake, Virginia according to police.

But several media outlets have identified shooter as a manager at store. Kosinski said no shots were fired at police "to his knowledge".

He added that several officers and investigators were carefully sweeping store and securing area. "We're only a few hours into response, so we don't have all answers yet," City of Chesapeake said. "We do know there are multiple fatalities plus injuries and shooter is confirmed dead." Largest retailed in country Walmart wrote early on Wednesday that it was "shocked at this tragic event". "We're praying for those impacted, community and our associates".
