A police source told local news outlet WAVY 10 that Bing had carried a written manifesto on his phone. Fox News has yet to confirm the report with the Chesapeake Police Department.

Chesapeake city officials identified Bing as the gunman who is believed to have killed six people before police said he turned the gun on himself.
Bing was an “overnight team leader and has been employed with us since 2010,” the company said Wednesday in a statement to Fox News Digital. The 31-year-old man from Chesapeake was “armed with a handgun and had several magazines,” according to the city.

“While details of the tragic incident at our Chesapeake, Virginia store are still emerging, authorities have confirmed multiple deaths. We are focused on doing everything we can to support our associates and their families at this time,” Walmart said in a statement. “The suspected shooter has been identified as Andre Bing. We can confirm that he was an associate of Walmart.”
Employee Briana Tyler said the nightly inventory team of about 15 to 20 people had just met in the break room to go over the plan for the morning. She said the meeting was about to start when her team leader said, “Okay guys, we’ve got a quiet night ahead of us,” as her manager turned and opened fire on the staff.
“It’s by the grace of God that a bullet didn’t go through me,” Tyler said. “I saw the smoke coming from the gun and I literally watched the bodies fall. It was crazy.”

The chaos ended after police said the shooter, who was armed with a handgun, pointed it at himself. It is believed that he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Fox News contacted the Chesapeake Police Department for information on Bing’s motives, but authorities were unwilling to release details at this time.
Fox News Digital has also contacted regional FBI sources for information about the manifest left behind by Bing, but has yet to hear back.
