One of the persons injured was a Virginia Beach police officer, who was saved by his vest, according to the police chief.

Information so far is that around 4 p.m. Friday, a current, long time city employee of the public utility department walked into Building #2 of the Virginia Beach Municipal Center and began “indiscriminately shooting” on multiple floors of the building, according to Police Chief Joe Cervera. Eleven people were killed.

The FBI and its forensic team, DHS forensic team, and Virginia State Police are assisting Virginia Beach PD with the investigation.

Building 2 near the courthouse went into lockdown as officers entered the building, and ultimately engaged the suspect. A gunfight ensued in which the suspect was killed. Police say that the scene is still “active” which simply means that the investigation has long way to go to find all the answers. They’ve set up a place where family members can meet, and asked that people please avoid the area.

Building #2 houses the operations center, with multiple departments. The suspect’s name has not been released, but police say they will reveal more information at a later time.
