Chesapeake Walmart gunman Andre Bing has fallen out with colleagues

The shooter, who was named in the Walmart shooting in Virginia that killed six, was “disruptive”, known to argue with colleagues and had a “hostile” attitude.

Andre Bing, the store’s night team leader, was someone new hires avoided and miraculously survived Tuesday night’s bloodshed, according to Briana Taylor, who started working for the Chesapeake store about two months ago.

“He was the manager to watch out for because there was always something going on with him, he just had a problem with someone,” Tyler told ABC News.

“But I never expected it to reach 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] walked 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 “pretty mean to a lot of us.”

Workers said suspected shooter Andre Bing was known to have problems with staff.

Another colleague who worked with Bing for three years said he was paranoid.

Shaundrayia Reese said: “He always said the government was watching him. He disliked social media and kept black tape on his phone camera.

“Everyone always thought there was something 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 began when Bing launched his attack.

“As soon as my team said, ‘All right, we’re going to have a light night tonight,’ I looked up and my manager just opened the door and he just opened fire,” Tyler told the outlet.

Briana Taylor was in the break room when Andre Bing allegedly opened fire.

“It wasn’t specifically aimed at anyone. He literally started shooting all over the break room and I could see several people just falling to the ground, whether trying to duck for cover or getting hit.”

At one point, Bing looked “directly at her” and opened fire, but “luckily” missed a direct shot to the head, she said.

“He didn’t say a word, he didn’t say anything at all,” she recalled.

“The first person that was in his sight shot him down and next thing you know he just started manipulating the whole break room but he didn’t say a word.”

Six of Tyler’s associates were killed in the shooting, including 21-year-old Tyneka Johnson. After the killings, he turned the gun on himself. The identities of the other victims have yet to be released.

Kevin Harper had arrived early for his shift Tuesday night and was sitting in the break room when he got a bad feeling and decided to leave. Moments later, he heard gunfire from the room, so he ran, hid, and waited for the carnage to end.

“I can’t tell you how long I hid there,” he told the outlet.

“Time just stood still at that moment.”

Andre Bing reportedly opened fire in a break room at the store.

If he could, he ran out of the store’s employee entrance as fast as he could. As he left, he described seeing two women on the ground, one covered in blood.

“I’m just praying for my Walmart family,” he said. Chesapeake Walmart gunman Andre Bing has fallen out with colleagues
