WASHINGTON: A municipal employee started gunfire “indiscriminately” in a government building complex on Friday in the US state of Virginia, police said, 12 people are killed and four are injured. This act spread the fear in the city.
The municipal employee was also killed after an exchange of gun fire with responding officers, in a scene that “best could be described as a war zone,” Virginia Beach police chief James Cervera told a news conference.
The shooting happened just after 4:00 pm (2000 GMT), when the gunman entered one of the buildings at the Virginia Beach municipal complex and “instantly started to fire on all of the victims,” Cervera said. One victim was killed outside in his vehicle, while the others were found on all three floors of the building. Police upgraded the casualty toll to 12 dead and four wounded on Friday night, after earlier reporting 11 dead and six wounded….. HADISA
