This week’s tragic shooting at a Virginia Walmart left seven people dead (including the perpetrator) and six more injured. On Friday, authorities published a note written by the gunman…
Andre Bing, the suspect, committed suicide by shooting himself, and the city of Chesapeake, Virginia, disclosed the information in a series of Tweets on Friday, with some names redacted.
“As the case has developed, detectives have analyzed the suspect’s phone, which was found at the scene, using forensic techniques. This memo was detected in the gadget,” the city claimed in the statement.
Bing, 31, starts off the “death note” with an apology before claiming that he was “harassed” by coworkers who compared him to Jeffrey Dahmer and that he thought his phone had been hacked.
Things came into place, the writer of the note promised, “as I was driven by Satan.”
Bing also alludes to his mother’s death from illness and expresses regret that his parents did not “pay greater attention” to his “social inadequacies.”
Bing legally bought a 9mm handgun from a nearby store the morning of the shooting, and the police have found that he used that gun in the attack. ..
At Bing’s house, police also discovered ammunition, a receipt for the firearm, and other documents.
According to the authorities, Bing’s criminal past was spotless previous to the incident.
Three people, including Bing, were found dead in the break room of the Walmart. The front of the shop was where the body of one victim was discovered. ..
Three other victims who were brought to nearby hospitals subsequently died from their wounds.
The deceased victims were identified by the city Wednesday evening as Lorenzo Gamble, Brian Pendleton, Kellie Pyle, Randall Blevins and Tyneka Johnson.
One of the victims is a 16-year-old boy whose identity and photo have been suppressed out of respect for his age.
On Friday, Chesapeake Mayor Rick West announced that a candlelight memorial would be held on Monday in memory of the victims.
“It has also been confirmed by police that a 9 millimeter handgun was used by the suspect.
On the morning of November 22, 2022, the weapon was legally purchased from a neighborhood store.
This man had never been convicted of a crime.”
