Officers were dispatched to the Walmart Supercenter at 10:12 p.m. local time, Chesapeake police spokesperson Leo Kosinski told reporters from outside the scene.

“Over the course of the next 30, 45 minutes, we were able to find multiple fatalities and multiple injured parties,” Kosinski said.

The exact number of deceased and wounded victims was not confirmed. 

The suspected shooter, who is believed to have acted alone, was dead, Kosinski disclosed.
