Another senseless massacre in a building, ironically a few hundred feet from the police department.
What We Know About The Virginia Beach Mass Shooting Victims
Friday night's shooting at a municipal building in Virginia Beach killed 12 people. Most were city employees with a length of service ranging from 11 months to 41 years.
"They leave a void that we will never be able to fill," City Manager Dave Hansen said Saturday morning.
Officials identified the shooter as DeWayne Craddock, a 15-year public utilities engineer, who was a current employee at the time of the shooting. He died after what Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera called a "long-term large gunfight" with police officers.
