11 dead. Good gawd. What a tragedy.

At least the shooter is dead.

At least 11 deaths and 6 injuries at Virginia Beach municipal complex, police say; shooter also dead: reports

At least 11 people are dead, and six people were injured Friday when a shooter, who was shot and killed by police, opened fire inside a Virginia Beach city building, Police Chief Jim A. Cervera said on Friday.

The shooter was a current longtime public utility worker for the city, Cervera said. Authorities have not released his name or a possible motive for the shooting.


"This is the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach," Mayor Bobby Dwyer said. "The people involved are our friends, coworkers, neighbors and colleagues."

Five people were taken Virginia Beach General, and one person was being flown to the Level I Trauma Center at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, the Virginian-Pilot reported. A Virginia Beach police officer was among those shot, but was saved by his bullet-proof vest, Cervera said.

Authorities said via social media they believed there was just one shooter at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam urged his constituents to stay away from the area and abide law enforcement warnings in a tweet on Friday.

The shooting occurred shortly after 4 p.m., when the suspect entered Building 2 of the center on Friday afternoon. It houses departments such as planning, public works and public utilities, and employees were seen exiting the building in tears, with some in need of medical assistance, according to reports by Fox News affiliate WAVY News 10.

He fired at multiple employees on different floors, Cevera said. He fired on responding police officers before being shot and killed.

Christina Pullen, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Norfolk, said the bureau responded to assist Virginia Beach police, The Associated Press reported. She did not have specifics on how many people were hurt.

According to The Virginian-Pilot, City Council Member Barbara Henley had just pulled up to the City Hall building just after 4 p.m. to pick up the agenda when she heard sirens and saw police cars.

"I thought it was an accident," Henley said, according to the paper.

Including the shooter. I guess 13 wasn't his lucky number.

Black guy with a legal suppressed .45 ACP. That's not a street weapon.

He cheated. You're supposed to use only five bullets in a firearm to stop--Oh! Sorry. Never mind. It was a psycho shooting innocent people dead. Five bullets max mean doodly squat to him.

I'm curious what the armchair combat veterans have to say about this.

More details.

Virginia Beach gunman gave resignation before shooting, was in ‘good standing,’ authorities say

Quote:
The Virginia Beach shooter who killed 12 people and wounded several others in a municipal complex on Friday had submitted his resignation earlier that morning, officials said Sunday.

The gunman, identified as 40-year-old DeWayne Craddock, was an engineer with the city's public utilities department for 15 years. In a news conference Sunday morning, Virginia Beach City Manager Dave Hansen described the man’s work performance as “satisfactory” with no ongoing issues of discipline.

In response to a reporter's question, Hansen said the shooter had notified his chain of command of his intention to quit via email on Friday, hours before the shooting.

Hansen also reiterated that Craddock was not fired or in the process of being fired leading up to the shooting. Police are continuing to investigate a possible motive for the deadly rampage.

Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera said that there was no “glaring” motive and no information on whether the gunman was targeting a specific person.

Interesting thought and total speculation on my part.

Earlier reports listed at least 1 of the pistols as a suppressed (silenced) .45, purchased in 2018, the other a .45 purchased 2016.

This guy appears to be a pillar of society. Good job, no law run ins, apparently single, although that's speculation. No real problems. A Class C license (For the suppressor) A C license generally requires up to a year, 200 bucks, and a very thorough BGC.

The shooting appears to be random. No victim or victim/shooter connection.

Last July another random mass shooting happened in Va Beach. No deaths, but several woundings. Casings found were .45, the same as this one. I don't think that one has ever been solved.

Does this make anyone besides me curious? The connections are small, but definitely there. It's not going to surprise me if the guns match.

I know, I think too much.
