The night supervisor for a Walmart located in Virginia was found to have left a bone-chilling “death note” prior to kicking off his shooting this past Tuesday night which resulted in the break room for the store becoming a bloodbath, killing a total of six employees of the store and the injuring of another six, explained the Chesapeake Police Department.
Police officials have been able to identify the gunman as the store’s night supervisor and a veteran employee of 12 years for the Chesapeake store; at the end of his insane shooting spree, the man turned the gun on himself.
“Sorry God, I’ve failed you, this was not your fault but my own,” the gunman stated via a note left behind which was discovered on his phone. “I failed to listen to the groans of the holy spirit which made me a poor representation of You. I was harassed by idiots with low intelligence and a lack of wisdom. I remained strong through most of the torment but my dignity was completely taken away beyond repair by my phone getting hacked.”
“I can’t say that they were the only ones that lacked intelligence and wisdom, I was just as guilty and failed my management team and everyone that ever loved me by convincing them that I was normal,” the dark note went on.
“A few months back I had overheard [redacted] talking to [redacted] and he told me that he had been trying to get rid of me since day one. After I heard that I lashed out,” exclaimed the shooter in the message. “The associates gave me twisted grins, mocked me and celebrated my downfall the last day. That’s why they suffer the same fate as me.”
The gunman stated in his “death note” that his “true intent was never to murder anyone believe it or not,” and that he “was actually one of the most loving people in the world if you would get to know me.
“I just wanted a wife that was equally yoked as I and obsessed over the thought; however, I didn’t deserve a wife,” he stated.
“My only wish would have been to start over from scratch and that my parents would have paid closer attention to my social deficits,” the note explained. “Sorry everyone but I did not plan this, I promise things just fell in place like I was led by the Satan.”
“My God forgive me for what I’m going to do,” concluded the chilling note.
As the investigation has progressed, detectives conducted a forensic analysis of the suspect's phone, which was located at the scene. This note was located in the device. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/uCAvAZgYWP

A few surviving employees stated that the gunman had been going after specific workers in addition to wildly firing his weapon.
“I just watched 3 of my coworkers/friends be killed in front of me,” explained Donya Prioleau via a post to Facebook. “[Redacted] killed them in cold blood … I cannot unsee what happened in that break room.”
It was confirmed by area police officials that the gunman utilized a 9mm handgun which had been legally bought from a local store the same day he carried out the shooting spree. The suspect also did not have any prior criminal history.
