VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Police say 11 people have been killed and six others injured in a mass shooting at the Virginia Beach Municipal Building.

Aerial video shot by Chopper 10 minutes after the incident showed people running from the building as paramedics treated victims. Dozens of law enforcement officers were on the scene securing the situation.

Police Chief James Cervera said Friday that a shooter opened fire and shot “indiscriminately” at workers inside an operations building in the Virginia Beach Municipal Building Friday afternoon.

Cervera said police returned fire, killing the suspect. He said the suspect was a longtime employee of the city’s Public Works Department. One of the people shot is a police officer.
