Shooting at Virginia Walmart leaves three injured | TheHill – The Hill

One person is in custody after three people including a deputy with the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office were shot Saturday afternoon at a northern Virginia Walmart.

A statement from the sheriff’s office indicated that no one was killed in the incident that occurred at the Dulles Crossing Plaza after a customer was confronted by two loss-prevention officers while attempting to leave the store.

No others were injured besides the deputy and two store security employees, who all suffered “serious but non-life-threatening injuries” according to police.


“He ended up striking the loss-prevention officers one time in each of their legs as far as we know,” Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman told reporters, according to NBC News. “One of our two deputies was shot and struck several times.”

Walmart representatives did not immediately return a request for comment.

In their statement, Loudon County police added that the suspect was injured by police gunfire while escaping the scene in a stolen vehicle and apprehended after crashing some distance down the road.
