CHESAPEAKE, Va. – The shooter who killed six people at a Walmart in Virginia late Tuesday was targeting co-workers, “going hunting” and making sure they were dead, according to a witness.

Jessica Wilczewski said overnight team leader Andre Bing came into the break room before the late shift started and opened fire with a purpose, contradicting the account of another witness who said the gunman shot wildly.

“The way he was acting – he was going hunting,” Wilczewski told The Associated Press on Thursday. “The way he was looking at people’s faces and the way he did what he did, he was picking people out.”

Wilczewski, who had worked at the store only a few days, said the gunman let her go when he recognized her, but fired again at other employees he had already hit and were down.

“What I do know is that he made sure who he wanted dead, was dead,” she said. “He went back and shot dead bodies that were already dead. To make sure.”

On Wednesday, fellow Walmart worker Briana Tyler had said Bing “was just shooting all throughout the room. It didn’t matter who he hit.”

Police said Bing, who had a handgun and multiple magazines, was found dead in the break room from a likely self-inflicted gunshot wound. Bing, 31, had been a Walmart employee since 2010, the company said. 

WAVY-TV 10 in Portsmouth, Virginia, reported that Bing left behind a “manifesto.” Chesapeake police spokesman Leo Kosinski said investigators are looking into the report.

Police investigating motive for attack

Authorities worked Thursday to determine a motive in the shooting that killed six people and injured at least six others. The city of Chesapeake said Thursday that two of the injured remain hospitalized, one in critical condition and the other one in fair/improving condition.
