From The New York Post:
A worker claimed the gunman was the store’s manager and he turned his gun on himself after the attack.
“It was wild. It was a manager — one of the managers,” an employee in a Walmart uniform said in a Facebook live stream, explaining that he narrowly avoided being killed in the rampage.
“He blew his brains out and everything. He killed the girl in there and everything. He came in and started spraying. I’m sorry for the victims,” he said.
“I just left the break room … the manager come in there and started capping people up in there, started shooting. Sadly, we lost a few of our associates,” he added as a woman was heard crying at his side.
