The City of Chesapeake on Twitter said police “confirm an active shooter incident with fatalities at the Walmart on Sam’s Circle. Our first responders are well-trained and prepared to respond; please give them space to do so.”

However, the exact number of fatalities remained unclear, but WUSA said police said they believed no more than 10 people were killed in the shooting incident.

“We were able to find multiple fatalities and multiple injured parties,” said Chesapeake Police Department officer Leo Kosinski. He added that rapid response officers entered the store “immediately” as they arrived on the scene.

Virginia state Senator Louise Lucas, who represents the region, said she was “absolutely heartbroken that America’s latest mass shooting took place in a Walmart in my district in Chesapeake, Virginia tonight.”

Based on news footage there is a major police presence at the scene as several officers and investigators were combing through the store and securing the area.
