US shooting: Suspect among 7 dead after attack at Walmart store

In US, an attacker killed at least six people at a Walmart late Tuesday in the state of Virginia, police said, adding the single shooter suspect is also dead. The mass shooting in the city of Chesapeake comes just before Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday and follows a weekend gun attack at an LGBTQ club in Colorado that left five people dead. Police did not provide any details about the suspected shooter's identity or how the assailant died.

Local media reported that witnesses said the shooting began at the back of the store and that at least five wounded had been rushed to the hospital.

Virginia state Senator Louise Lucas, who represents the Chesapeake region, said she was "absolutely heartbroken that America's latest mass shooting took place... in my district."

Gun violence occurs at an alarming rate in the United States, where more than 600 mass shootings have occurred so far in 2022, according to the Gun Violence Archive website.
