At least 11 dead in Virginia Beach mass shooting at municipal center
At least 11 people were killed after a gunman opened fire at a municipal building in Virginia Beach, Virginia, police Chief James Cervera told reporters Friday night.

The shooter, who was was a public utilities worker, also is dead, Cervera said. The chief said the gunman fired "indiscriminately."

"This is the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach," said Mayor Bobby Dyer. "The people involved are our friends, coworkers, neighbor, colleagues."


Cervera said the shooter was confronted shortly after opening fire on multiple floors. There was an exchange of gunfire with officers, the chief said.


A police officer whose ballistic vest stopped a bullet was injured, the police chief said.

The mass shooting took place in Building 2 of the municipal center, according to police.

Building 2 of the Virginia Beach Municipal Center houses the operations building for the city, which include multiple departments.







Six people were hospitalized after the shooting, hospital officials tweeted.







Virginia Beach General Hospital said there were five patients there. A patient who was at Princess Anne Hospital was being transferred to Norfolk General Hospital, a Level I trauma center.

The FBI is also responding to the incident to provide assistance to local authorities, an FBI spokeswoman told CNN.

The incident is the deadliest mass shooting in the US since November.

In that shooting, 12 people were killed at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. Officials said that gunman, Ian David Long, shot an unarmed security guard outside the bar, went in and continued shooting, injuring other security workers, employees and patrons. Long died by suicide.

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine tweeted that he was devastated by the news Friday.

"My heart is with everyone who lost a loved one, and I'm praying for a swift recovery for all those who have been injured," he said.

Sen. Mark Warner wrote: "Praying for all involved as we learn more."

"We are praying for our city, the lives that were lost, their families and everyone affected," singer Pharell Williams, who grew up in Virginia Beach, tweeted. "We are resilient. We will not only get through this but we'll come out of this stronger than before we always do."

On the list it says the gunman killed himself at a courthouse but the linked source story says he was killed in a shootout at the scene.  ?????

I wonder if it was one of those sitting duck gun free zones. 

Most business's are gun free zones. More guns do not mean less crime, if it did, with 300 million guns in the hands of private citizens would be completely crime free. The "good guy with a gun" story is so rare it's usually national news when it actually does happen.

I have no idea why so many immigrants want to go to America - they must not realize that they will be living in a massive nation-wide shooting gallery.  I wish my son would move back to Canada.

True. There was a gal here from Australia on vacation, called the police and the police shot and killed her.

Will not comment on the issue of 'guns.'  Or, another and continuing 'black eye' on our nation.

But, our society and social structure which is allegedly 'so connected' is becoming more disconnected.

Thoughts and prayers.  And our politicians will...………...uh...………….need money for re-election I guess.
