Disgruntled Employee Kills At Least 12 People at Virginia Beach Shooting

  • The United States has again become a victim of the gun culture as a man reportedly killed at least 12 people in Virginia’s government building. Reports say that a disgruntled city employee (whose name will be made public only after notifying the families of the victim) started firing indiscriminately at Virginia Beach Municipal Center just after 16:00 (20:00 GMT). An official is also reportedly injured after a bullet hit him on the vest. Just after the mass shooting started, the police locked down the building and at the same time evacuated the employees from there. After the horrifying incident, an administrative assistant, Megan Banton said that “We just heard people yelling and screaming at people to get down”. While police chief compared the combat situation with a war zone, eye witnesses say that the gunman was shot dead immediately after 4 officers entered the building and engaged him immediately.
