The shooter responsible for firing in a Virginia Beach city building Friday afternoon, killing 12 people

and sending at least four others to the hospital, was a resentful utility worker and employee; who later

died after a long gunfight with officers. Making this the biggest mass shooting this year. Friday’s rampage

is believed to be the worst mass killing in Virginia Beach’s history actually. In the U.S., it is the deadliest

attack since the November 2018 shooting at Borderline Bar & Grill in California, when 12 people were

killed. In Virginia Beach city, one victim was shot in a car and the gunman fired without a target as he

went through all three floors of Building 2 at the city's municipal center. An officer involved in the

gunfight was also shot. The officer survived, thanks to a bullet proof vest. The shooting suspect was

identified as DeWayne Craddock. Craddock, 40, worked as a certified professional engineer for the city

of Virginia Beach in the Public Utilities Department. President Trump has been briefed on the shooting.
