Walmart sued by employees over deadly shooting in Virginia

Walmart employees in Chesapeake, Virginia, filed a lawsuit against the company last week after a boss shot and killed six people.

Doña Priorau suing Walmart WMT.N Chesapeake police said she worked as a night stocker with Andrebing as she sought $50 million in damages in Virginia court.

A Walmart spokeswoman said the company is reviewing the complaint and will respond in court.

Bing, who led the overnight purchasing team, was known as a “mean and brutal” supervisor and had been repeatedly reprimanded by the company for his behavior, according to Prilow. “People will remember my name,” Bing said of retaliation if he was fired, according to the complaint.

Prior to the shooting, Priorau said Bing asked her if she liked guns and asked colleagues if they had active shooting training. It continued to employ Bing, the lawsuit alleges.

Prioleau said he was in the break room where two employees were killed when the shooting started and said he fell and injured himself while fleeing the room. She is also seeking damages for emotional harm, as well as compensation for medical expenses and lost wages. Walmart sued by employees over deadly shooting in Virginia
