    11 dead after shooting at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center

    At least 11 people were killed and six people injured by a shooter who was shot and killed by police at the city's Municipal Center in Princess Anne on Friday afternoon, police said.

    Dale Gauding, a Sentara spokesman, said in an email that five patients went to Virginia Beach General, and one person has arrived at the Level I Trauma Center at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital at 6:13 a.m. in a Nightingale helicopter.

    Master Police Officer Allen Perry confirmed there was a shooter in the Operations building next door to City Hall, which is near the intersection of Princess Anne Road and Nimmo Parkway.
    This is more or less a breaking story, so expect numbers to change. Besides the 11 people killed, it looks like there was a single shooter, who was killed by police.

    Virginia Beach shooting: 11 killed, 6 injured; suspect also dead

    6:46 p.m. 11 victims have been pronounced dead, as well as the gunman, and another six are injured following Friday’s shooting at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center, Virginia Beach Police Chief Jim Cervera confirmed in a press conference.

    A Virginia Beach police officer was shot in the incident, but was protected by a bulletproof vest. He’s expected to be OK.

    The gunman was a longtime public works city employee.

    Virginia Beach Mayor Bobby Dyer said this goes down as the most devastating day in the city’s history.

    6:34 p.m. — WAVY’s Andy Fox reports that multiple city sources say the suspect, who is now deceased, is a disgruntled former city employee who was fired on Thursday ...

    I'm surprised the gubernor wasn't wearing his blackface and held a can of beer while reading his notes.

    UPDATE ON VIRGINIA BEACH SHOOTING:

    New details emerge about alleged Virginia Beach shooter DeWayne Craddock

    The deranged gunman who allegedly massacred 12 people at a Virginia Beach government building was a longtime city employee who served at times as a public relations rep for its utilities department.

    DeWayne A. Craddock, a 40-year-old engineer who worked for the Virginia Beach water and sanitary sewer services for 15 years, was identified by police Saturday.

    He died following a “long gun battle” with cops Friday after he allegedly fired indiscriminately at people inside a Virginia Beach municipal building, Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cevera said.

    Police officials said they found multiple weapons at the scene of the shooting and later at Craddock’s home.

    a) He was in the National Guard so he was probably a Nazi.

    b) The only reason to have more firearms in his house was that he was a Nazi.

    c) The previous day he had walked by a break room and several workers were playing bridge. One of the players bid "one no trump". He heard the bid as "no more Trump". Since he was a Nazi and supported Trump he was triggered. He thought about what was said more and more and became unhinged. Because the United States doesn't have free medical care for all (because of Trump) he couldn't seek a mental health professional and thus went on the shooting spree.

    This is what happens when you're told you're special all your life and that you're not taught how to deal with failure. So people lash out. There's a reason why we didn't have these problems before the mid 90's when mass shootings seemed to start being a thing. I believe over medication has a lot to do with as well. I want to know if this guy was on psychotropic drugs like Xanax or something similar.

    Sometimes it's mental illness-the kind in which he hear voices telling him to kill people. Schizophrenia, uncontrolled Bipolar, usually those are the underlying diagnosis for that kind of thing.

    But this is an employee workplace violence kind of thing with an adult who has been fairly functional up to now, so who knows? Drugs? Medications? Brain tumor? What Jersey said about not being taught how to handle failure?
