Two victims remained in hospital Thursday night after the horrific mass shooting at a Virginia Walmart earlier this week as a ‘victim list’ was allegedly thrown by the killer in the trash outside his home before the rampage not be revealed.
Chesapeake City tweeted a Thursday afternoon update confirming that two of those injured in Tuesday’s shooting were still under medical observation; one in critical condition and the other in fair/improving condition.
“On this Thanksgiving Day, we are extremely grateful to our community and are thinking of each victim of the Walmart shooting and their family members,” the update read.
It comes like the Daily Mail reports that the shooter, Walmart supervisor Andre Bing, threw a list with the name of one of his six victims circled into a trash can outside his home.
The list was found by a Mail journalist, who subsequently alerted the FBI to its existence. This shows, the Mail reported, the names of 18 of Bing’s fellow supermarket workers have been circled, including 22-year-old Tyneka Johnson, whom he killed. The names of the others he killed – Brian Pendleton, Randall Blevins, Lorenzo Gamble and Kellie Pyle – were not on the list. Two of those who were shot and survived and are currently hospitalized – Jalon Jones and Jessica Wilczewski – also had their names circled on the list.
The Mail reported that the list included details about Bing colleagues’ shifts, the departments they worked in, and the times they took breaks. The Mail also included images from the listing, as well as discarded screenshots of CCTV footage, found in the trash. The shooter committed suicide after the massacre, police said.
The FBI raided Bing’s home on Tuesday, just hours after the massacre. Photos from inside his three-bedroom house, where neighbors say he lived alone, show a cluttered space with boxes stacked on top of each other.
The details of the shooting and Bing’s state of mind paint a grim picture of the incident.
Walmart employee Jessica Wilczewski told The Associated Press that Bing was “going on the hunt” as he began shooting.
“The way he was acting – he was going hunting,” she said. “The way he looked at people’s faces and the way he did what he did, he selected people.
“What I do know is that he made sure whoever he wanted to kill was dead,” Wilczewski added. “He came back and shot corpses that were already dead. To assure.”
Meanwhile, local TV station 10 On Your Side spoke to an employee who said she suspected the shooting was planned and she heard the shooter laughing.
Store worker Kevin Harper posted a video of himself on Facebook Live right after the shooting.
“It’s crazy, though, it was the manager, one of the managers,” he said as the sirens sounded around him.
“He came in and just started spraying and shit.
Law enforcement also told 10 On Your Side that they found a manifesto on Bing’s phone describing how he was “upset about the recent change in employment status and being harassed about it. by his colleagues.
City officials announced a public memorial for the victims scheduled for Monday, Nov. 28, at 6 p.m. at Chesapeake City Park.
The Chesapeake Police Department told The Daily Beast Thursday afternoon that there were “no updates available at this time.”
More information about the shooting will be released Friday, according to city officials.
