Walmart Shooter Bought The Gun On Day Of Shooting & Left ‘death note,’

(CTN NEWS) – According to information provided Friday by Chesapeake, Virginia, authorities, the Walmart night crew supervisor who shot and killed six of his coworkers on Tuesday did so with a weapon he bought the day before the assault and left a “death note.”

Andre Bing stated in a message that was left on his phone, according to Chesapeake Police, “Sorry everyone, but I did not plan this. I swear things just fell in place like Satan guided me.”

According to the latest information, Andre Bing, 31, used a 9-millimetre pistol that he legally bought from a nearby shop the same day as the shooting.

At Bing’s home, according to the police, they discovered ammo, a receipt, and papers about the firearm purchase.

Just minutes after the incident was reported and just a few days before Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday shopping season, police arrived at the scene on Tuesday just after 10 p.m. ET.

According to police, one of the victims was a 16-year-old kid. A ceremony was held on Thursday night to remember the victims.

Bing, who authorities claimed had no criminal past, died of what seemed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the spot.

The mass gunman complained about his coworkers in a note on Bing’s smartphone, which also gave insight into his possible motivation for the deadly attack.

In the letter, Bing detailed alleged harassment by his coworkers and made references to God and the Holy Spirit. The New York Times said his former coworkers called him “strange” and claimed he occasionally had a “nasty attitude.”

In a statement, Walmart stated that “nothing can justify sacrificing innocent life.” “Our focus remains on the families who are grieving and helping our employees during this trying time,” the statement reads.

Two people are being treated at nearby hospitals, according to officials. One is still in serious condition, whereas the other is getting better.
