Walmart manager who shot dead six co-workers in Virginia left ‘death note’ and said he was compared to Jeffrey Dahmer | US News

Police say the gunman in the Walmart mass shooting in Virginia left a “death letter” to God on his phone.

Andre Bing, 31, said his actions were not planned, but that everything went as if he was being led by Satan, in the rambling letter released by the Chesapeake Police Department on Friday , NBC reported.

Bing added that he didn’t listen to the Holy Spirit.

The attack at the US store on Tuesday resulting in six deaths and four others being hospitalized.

In the document, Bing also said that he lost his dignity after his phone was hacked.

He said people unfairly compared him to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, and wrote, “I will never kill anyone who walks into my house.”

Signing off, he asked God to forgive him for what he was about to do.

Police said in a statement that they found the note when “detectives were conducting forensic analysis of the suspect’s phone located at the scene.”

Police said the motive for the shooting was still unclear and they could not say when the letter was written.

“Nothing can justify taking the lives of innocent people,” Walmart said in a statement.

“We continue to focus on grieving families and support our associates through this difficult time.”

Walmart says Bing is its overnight team leader, who has been with the company since 2010.

Police said the 9mm pistol used in Tuesday night’s shooting was legally purchased that morning and Bing has no criminal record.

Officers released a copy of the note found on his phone, which appears to have redacted the names of the specific people he mentioned.

Bing died at the scene apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A vigil for the victims of the shooting will be held Monday at City Park in Chesapeake.
