Multiple people have been killed after a gunman opened fire in a Walmart supermarket in the United States.

The shooting occurred on Tuesday night local time in the east coast state of Virginia.

Police responded to a report of a shooting inside the Chesapeake Walmart around 10:12 pm on Tuesday night local time, just 45 minutes before the store was due to close.

The shooter – believed to be the store manager – turned the gun on himself after killing multiple people.

Authorities found him dead when they arrived at the scene.

Local police said they believed the number of fatalities was “less than 10” in a brief news conference after the event.

A motive for the shooting has yet to be established.

The Walmart shooting marks the second high-profile mass shooting in less than a week, after a gunman opened fire in a gay nightclub in Colorado on Saturday night.
