Andre Bing: Chesapeake Walmart shooter was 'picking people out' and 'made sure' they were dead
CHESAPEAKE, VIRGINIA: A witness to the horrific mass shooting in Virginia stated that the maniacal Walmart manager who killed six people was "hunting" for particular employees. Andre Bing reportedly knew who he wanted to kill when he entered the break room at the start of the evening shift on November 22 in Chesapeake, Virginia, according to Jessica Wilczewski.
While WAVY News reported that the shooter left a manifesto on his phone and the Daily Mail claimed to have discovered a "kill list" in the garbage at his home, Wilczewski's terrifying story of Bing's hunt solidified earlier rumors of his intentions. Numerous coworkers of Bing's were circled on that list, including Tyneka Johnson, 22, who was one of the six victims of the shooting on Tuesday night. “The way he was acting — he was going hunting,” she said. “The way he was looking at people’s faces and the way he did what he did, he was picking people out. What I do know is that he made sure who he wanted dead, was dead,” Wilczewski added. “He went back and shot dead bodies that were already dead. To make sure.”

Wilczewski, who had only been employed by Walmart for five days, claimed that Bing told her to go home after spotting her hiding beneath a table when he noticed her. He told her to leave the store, so she did as he said. Six individuals were slain by Bing, 31, including Tyneka, Randy Blevins, 70, Kellie Pyle, 52, Lorenzo Gamble, 43, and Brian Pendleton, 38. Blake Williams, 23, who is now fighting for his life on a ventilator, was one of six people who were hurt in the incident. After the attack, Bing who was a Walmart team leader killed himself. He had been employed by the organization since 2010. Bing complained about recent, vague changes to his employment status and claimed that other staff members were pestering him about it in his phone call, a source informed WAVY News. One of the station's correspondents tweeted that the first responder "found a list near the shooter’s body of employees he presumably wanted to target."
Coworkers have said that they were aware that the shooter was not normal. The store's newest employee, Briana Taylor, who managed to survive the bloodbath spoke to ABC News: “He was the manager to look out for because there was always something going on with him, just having an issue with someone." Bing allegedly "said a lot of disturbing things," according to Donya Prioleau, who was in the break room when he entered and started shooting. Bing, according to Prioleau, was "quite mean to a lot of us," "condescending" and lacking in "good communication skills." Joshua Johnson, a former maintenance worker at the Chesapeake shop told CNN that Bing had made terrifying threats years before he drafted his name as the most recent mass shooter in the United States. “He said if he ever got fired from his job he would retaliate and people would remember who he was,” said Johnson, who worked at the store until 2019.
