Walmart Super Center shooting: Who is Darrius Rowser? Dangerous Suspect with historical shooting events is arrested

The Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, saw a tragic shooting on Tuesday night. At around 10 p.m., the supercenter swiftly reported the event, but by the time police came, numerous people had already died. Police stated that the gunman passed away in the incident but have not yet disclosed the number of dead and injured civilians.

According to Leo Kosinski, a police spokesman, “Our research has found that there was a single shooter, and he was also killed in the incident.”

A lone shooter was most likely present inside the business, the police officer added, according to other reports. The suspect shot people present inside the company after pulling a gun.

Two people were hurt in a gunshot at a Walmart on I-65 in Mobile. Two people had been shot inside a Walmart close to I-65, according to Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine, at around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Prine asserted that a brawl broke out between two groups of people at the self-checkout line in an interview with WKRG News 5. Prine announced that bullets started to fly between the two teams. He stated that the number of fired shots is yet unknown to police.

Prine claimed that a man and a woman had both been shot and taken to a hospital for treatment. Prine omitted to report on the victim’s state of health. Additionally, he stated that it is unknown whether the two people who were hit were clients or workers.

According to Prine, the nature of the disagreement and whether the two victims knew one another is also unknown, but everything is “consolidated” and in control. According to Prine, Walmart was placed on lockdown and would be closed for the remainder of the evening.

The Mobile Police Department announced late Friday that Carmelo Derks, 18, had been arrested and taken to Mobile County Metro Jail.

The police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jimaurice Pierce, 19, and Darrius Rowser, 19, who are still unaccounted for.
