The gunman named in the Walmart shooting in Virginia that killed six was “disturbing,” known to feud with co-workers and had a “hostile” attitude.
Andre Bing, the store’s overnight team lead, was someone whom new hires avoided, according to Briana Taylor, who started working for the Chesapeake store about two months ago and miraculously survived Tuesday night’s bloodshed.
“He was the manager to look out for because there was always something going on with him, just having an issue with someone,” Tyler told ABC News.
“But I never expected it to get to this level.”
Donya Prioleau, who was in the break room when Bing entered and opened fire, claimed he “said a lot of disturbing things.”
She added to CNN: “[Bing] came in, shot three of my friends … Half of us didn’t believe it was real until some of us saw all the blood on the floor.”
Prioleau also described Bing as “condescending” and lacking “good communication skills,” and said he was “quite mean to a lot of us.”
“Everyone always thought something was wrong with him,” she told CNN.
Around 10 p.m. Tuesday, Tyler said, she and about 14 other employees were gathered in the break room before their shifts started when Bing started his attack.
“As soon as my team said, ‘All right, we have a light night tonight,’ I looked up and my manager just opened the door and he just opened fire,” Tyler told the outlet.
