According to the investigators, the primary goal of the investigation is to find out as much as possible about the suspect in the Chesapeake Walmart shooting, including any potential motives. WAVY worked all day on Wednesday to get in touch with anyone who knew the suspect, Chesapeake resident Andre Bing, 31. According to Walmart, he had been employed by the business since 2010 and worked the overnight shift as a team lead.
Up until six months ago, Bing’s former coworker directly beneath him at Walmart said he knew Bing reasonably well, but he never would’ve imagined this kind of conduct.

At least not from a million miles away. I never saw this coming. He was generally laid-back and carefree, albeit a little odd and energetic. Some of his coworkers didn’t like him since he could occasionally be challenging to get along with. But I don’t believe they mistreated him,” he added.

The worker, who requested that we withhold his name, said he is finding it difficult to comprehend how easily he may have fallen victim. It’s just insane. If this had happened six months earlier, it might have been me. I would have been present, he declared.
The worker informed us that while he didn’t think Bing had any anger management difficulties, he was aware there might have been some problems. He was, in his words, “a good man from what I observed, but I’ve heard that he had troubles, and they attempted to talk him through his issues.”
According to neighbours in Chesapeake’s Eva Gardens neighbourhood, authorities were reportedly at Bing’s home less than an hour after the shooting on Tuesday night. Since then, the house has been cleared, and on Wednesday afternoon, the FBI could be seen gathering evidence.
While a public safety source claimed that a list of the people the shooter allegedly intended to target was discovered at the Walmart, a source told WAVY’s Investigative Team that no alarming items, such as extra weapons, ammunition, or details regarding the victims, were discovered when authorities searched Bing’s home on Wednesday.
Bing mainly stayed to himself, according to neighbours who talked with WAVY, and they didn’t know him. Bing lived next to Vera McDuffy for two years. “I’ve seen him simply in passing. He drives a little green Ford Focus,” Vera said. Police allegedly shouted, “Search warrant! They pounded on his door and said, “Search guarantee!
A witness told WAVY that she thought the shooting was preplanned and that the suspect was laughing when it happened earlier on Wednesday. According to authorities, Bing shot six people dead before turning the pistol on himself. On Wednesday night, three patients remained in hospitals, two in critical condition.
A law enforcement source informed Chris Horne of 10 On Your Side that Bing had a manifesto on his phone. According to the insider, the manifesto detailed Bing’s anger at his recent change in employment status and the harassment he was experiencing.
