Americans love their guns….
Twelve people were killed and four were injured in a shooting Friday afternoon at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center. The suspected gunman was also killed.
Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera said the shooter was a “longtime employee of public utilities” and at about 4 p.m. “began to indiscriminately fire upon all the victims” using a .45-caliber handgun with multiple extended magazines and a suppressor.
The suspect, who Cervera did not identify by name, was killed after what was described as a “long-term gun battle” with four police officers. He is not included in the 12 victims Cervera reported dead.
One of the people injured was a Virginia Beach police officer, who officials said was saved by his vest.
Cervera did not offer a motive in the shooting.
“While the scene is secure, we have a long-term investigative process that is being undertaken right now,” he told reporters Friday evening. “There’s a lot of work to be done.”
“We have more questions than we have answers,” he added. “None of us want to be here talking about this devastating incident that is going to change the lives of a number of families in our city.”
The attack occurred in a single building in the 30-building complex…..
