A shooting at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, on Tuesday night has resulted in multiple death, official sources said. The shooter, whose identity has not been revealed, too has died.

According to the local media report, the incident happened at the Walmart on Sam's Circle in Virginia.

Though the authorities have not released the number of fatalities, reports suggest "less than 10" have died.

Leo Kosinski, a spokesman with the Police Department, told sources that officers responded to a report of a shooting inside the Walmart at about 10 p.m. On arrival, they found "multiple fatalities and multiple injured."

It is unclear whether or not the shooter was an employee of the Walmart store.

The shooter might have committed suicide since the police said it was unlikely that they fired any shots, the report added.

Meanwhile, photos and videos from the Walmart shooting began doing rounds on the social media. They showed officers huddling around the entrance of the building.
