The shooter at Walmart purchased a gun hours before the massacre

The gunman in the tragic shooting at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, lawfully purchased the weapon he used hours before opening fire on his coworkers, according to municipal officials.

Chesapeake officials say Andre Bing, 31, purchased the 9 millimeter pistol from a shop on Tuesday morning and killed six people that evening.

The shooter had no criminal background, according to officials.

The victims have been named by the police as Brian Pendleton, 38; Kellie Pyle, 52; Lorenzo Gamble, 43; and Randy Blevins, 70; and Tyneka Johnson, 22, of neighboring Portsmouth. Police stated that among the deceased was a 16-year-old kid whose identity was suppressed due to his age.

A spokesman for Walmart verified that all of the casualties were company employees.

This story is in progress and will be updated.
