Andre Bing Identified As Walmart Shooter

According to interviews with people who worked with the suspected gunman, Andre Bing, who was a night shift team leader, could be rude to his coworkers and had paranoid ideas about the government.

Donya Prioleau, who was in the break room when Bing walked in and started shooting, said, “He said a lot of disturbing things.”

She said, “We do not know what made him do this.” “None of us can figure out what went wrong.”

She said that Bing had come in and shot three of her friends before she ran away. Half of us did not believe it was real until some of us saw the blood on the floor.”

Prioleau said that in the past, Bing would sometimes talk down to them. He did not know how to talk to people well. Many of us thought he was pretty mean.

Shaundrayia Reese, who worked for Bing from 2015 to 2018, said that he was a person who did things on his own.

“He always said that the government was keeping an eye on him. He did not like social media, so he covered his phone camera with black tape. “Everyone thought there was something wrong with him all the time,” Reese said.

Reese says she took a video of a man she calls Bing talking to people in 2016. When Bing realizes he is being filmed, he walks away.

Reese said, “He did not like being taped.” “He always worried that the government was paying attention.”

Joshua Johnson, who worked as a maintenance worker at the store until 2019 and told CNN that Bing had made scary threats if he ever lost his job, also said that Bing had said that he would kill him if he lost his job.

Johnson said, “He said that if he ever lost his job, he would get even, and people would remember who he was.”

They said that neither Johnson nor Reese told management about anything wrong with Bing.

Johnson said that Bing had problems with some of the maintenance workers and would threaten to write them up if they did not do what he said.

Chesapeake Police Chief Mark Solesky said that no clear reason has been found yet for why the shooting happened.

Walmart said in a statement that Bing was an employee and that the company was “thankful to the local first responders and will continue to work with local law enforcement as their investigation continues.”
