Jessie Wilczewski Wiki
Jessie Wilczewski Biography
The gunman who opened fire at a Virginia Walmart has been identified as Andre Bing, a store manager who killed six co-workers before taking his own life.
A Facebook Live video apparently made by a Walmart employee had been circulating online showing a coworker she calls “Andre.”
The young man is seen joking with the workers before walking away when the woman points her camera at him. It was unclear when the footage was shot.
Walmart later confirmed Bing’s identity in a company statement that said: “We are focused on doing everything we can to support our associates and their families at this time. The suspected shooter has been identified as Andre Bing. We can confirm that he was a Walmart associate.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Chesapeake police had raided the home where Bing was believed to live, breaking down the door.
Police Chief Mark Solesky said the gunman killed six co-workers before shooting himself with a pistol.
The shooter’s name was not initially released because next of kin had not been notified.
“There is no clear motive at this point,” Solesky said, adding that he had no indication law enforcement knew the gunman before the shooting. He was also unable to confirm that all of the victims were Walmart employees.
An apparent store employee described the horror on Facebook Live, first identifying the assailant as a manager.
“He blew his brains out and everything. He killed the girl over there and everything. He walked in and started spraying. I feel sorry for the victims,” said the employee, a man reportedly named Kevin Harper.
The shooter was a current Walmart employee who killed six co-workers before shooting himself by gun.
A store employee first identified the assailant as a manager.
Chesapeake police had raided the house where Bing was believed to be living and broke down the door.
“I just walked out of the break room, the manager went in there, he started covering people in there, he started shooting, bro. The manager came in, started throwing, man. As soon as I left the break room, he went in there, man… that’s wild,” he said.
Another employee, Jessie Wilczewski
Another employee, Jessie Wilczewski, told Norfolk TV station WAVY the shooter pointed her gun at her and told her to go home while she hid under a table.
“It didn’t even seem real until you could feel the… ‘pow-pow-pow,’ you can feel it,” Wilczewski told the outlet. “I couldn’t hear it at first because I guess it was so loud I could feel it.”
