Several coworkers of the Walmart supervisor suspected of committing the deadly rampage inside a Chesapeake, Virginia, store said the shooter had exhibited odd and threatening behavior in the past.
Andre Bing, the suspected gunman who worked as a night shift team leader, could be gruff with fellow employees and expressed paranoid views about the government, according to interviews with coworkers.
“He said a lot of disturbing things,” said Donya Prioleau, who said she was in the employee break room when Bing entered and opened fire unexpectedly.
The Walmart manager who killed 6 people ‘just started spraying’ bullets in the break room, employee says
She said Bing “came in, shot three of my friends … before I took off running. Half of us didn’t believe it was real until some of us saw all the blood on the floor.”
Joshua Johnson, who worked as a maintenance worker at the store until 2019, also told CNN that Bing had previously issued ominous threats if he ever lost his job.
“He said if he ever got fired from his job he would retaliate and people would remember who he was,” Johnson said.
