Multiple people were shot and killed inside a Walmart in Chesapeake, Va., on Tuesday night, according to a spokesman with the Chesapeake Police Department.
The shooter, whose name the authorities did not release, was found dead at the store on Tuesday night, Leo Kosinski, a spokesman with the Police Department, said in a brief news conference.
Mr. Kosinski did not say exactly how many people had been fatally shot, but he said he believed it was “less than 10.”
The Police Department responded to a report of a shooting inside the Walmart at about 10 p.m., Mr. Kosinski said.
It was at least the second mass shooting in the country in less than a week. Five people were killed in shooting at an L.G.B.T.Q. club in Colorado Springs, Colo., over the weekend.
