COWORKERS of the suspected Chesapeake Walmart shooter have revealed more information about his “odd behavior,” including a mysterious video where he avoids the camera.
Shaundrayia Reese, 27, said that she worked with Bing at the Virginia Walmart location stocking shelves from 2014 to 2018.
She explained that the suspected shooter “didn’t do social media” and actually dodged the camera once while she recorded a video.
“He put tape on his phone, on the camera. Always used to tell us the government was just watching,” Reese told NBC News.
Police say Bing walked into the store’s breakroom as the night team was set to start their shift.
He allegedly opened fire, killing coworkers Tyneka Johnson, 22, Lorenzo Gamble, 43, Brian Pendleton, 38, Kellie Pyle, 52, Randall Blevins, 70, and a 16-year-old before turning the gun on himself.
He was found dead in civilian clothes alongside a handgun with multiple magazines.
Another former colleague Joshua Johnson said that Bing once made a haunting threat 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 told CNN.
Police were pictured serving a search warrant at Bing’s home on Wednesday.
A source reportedly told WAVY news that a manifesto was discovered on his phone which described frustrations with a recent change in his employment status.
Officials have yet to confirm these reports.
Multiple employees commented on Bing having issues with others and said he earned a reputation at the store where he had worked since 2010.
Months before the shooting, Briana Tyler had received a warning from coworkers, who reportedly said: “He was the manager to look out for because there was always something going on with him, just having an issue with someone.”
An unnamed witness who was a new employee at the store told WAVY that the shooter had “issues” with other managers.
Despite these chilling signs, Reese said that she never saw a violent side to the alleged shooter and described him as “a little off.”
Bing actually appears to be laughing in a video Reese once took.
She shared it on Facebook and a man said to be Bing is heard saying: “We was driving in the back and I was parking it and everything. Matter of fact, it’s more fun than driving a car.”
He then dodges the camera and laughs with Reese after he realizes she is recording.
Reese said: “He never talked about anything dealing with violence ever – always stuff about the government, his weight, his family. Stuff like that.”
Now, the mourning former coworker has taken to Facebook to share her heartbreaking condolences.
“It’s sad .. I really am hurt about this … BRIAN .. RANDY .. Lorenzo …. I love y’all .. glad I met and worked with y’all for them 4 years,” she wrote.
“This s**t is really real.”
Victim Lorenzo Gamble’s mother said of her son: “My quiet baby Lorenzo is gone he work there for 15 years, he was going transfer to Grassfield.
“They need get rid of guns, too much killing all over this land. Now his sons is loss without him.”
She later added: “Missing my baby right now, life is not same without my son. I can’t say goodbye.”
A friend of another victim shared a heartbreaking message: “I called to check on you, I texted just to make sure you were OK and I found out you are gone.
“This hurts RIH my friend Brian Pendleton “note to heaven” I’m still gonna make that hat I promised you last week.”
Police said about 50 people were at the store at the time of the shooting.
Chesapeake Mayor Rick West called the shooting senseless.
“I am devastated by the senseless act of violence that took place late last night in our City,” he said on Twitter. “My prayers are with all those affected – the victims, their family, their friends, and their coworkers.
“I am grateful for the quick actions taken by our first responders who rushed to the scene. Chesapeake is a tight-knit community and we are all shaken by this news. Together, we will support each other throughout this time. Please keep us in your prayers.”
The motive behind the mass shooting remains unknown.
Walmart told The U.S. Sun: “We are focused on doing everything we can to support our associates and their families at this time. The alleged shooter has been identified as Andre Bing. We can confirm that he was a Walmart associate.
“Andre’s position with the company was overnight team lead and he’s been employed with us since 2010. We are thankful for the local first responders and will continue to work with local law enforcement as they continue their investigation.”
