A shooting at a Chesapeake Walmart on Tuesday night left six dead, and four others hurt.
Authorities said the shooting happened on Tuesday around 10:15 p.m., just two days before Thanksgiving.
Walmart posted their president’s statement to multiple social media platforms on Wednesday evening, which you can see below.

Local lawmakers and state leaders in Virginia were reacting to the shooting late Tuesday evening and on Wednesday, with Att. Gen. Jason Miyares saying in part, “I’m sickened by this senseless violence.”
