COWORKERS of the suspected Chesapeake Walmart shooting have begun to reveal more information on his "odd behavior," including a mysterious video where he avoids the camera.
Overnight team lead Andre Bing is believed to have killed six people before taking his own life in a horrific Tuesday night mass shooting - former colleagues described him as paranoid but could never predict he would commit the horrific crime.4Former coworkers have revealed more information on suspected Chesapeake Walmart shooter Andre BingCredit: Chesapeake Police 4Cops said Bing killed five of his coworkers before turning the gun on himself inside the Walmart Tuesday nightCredit: AP 4Kellie Pyle, 52, was one of the victimsCredit: Handout 4Lorenzo Gamble, 43, is another victimCredit: Facebook
Shaundrayia Reese, 27, said she worked with Bing at the Walmart location stocking shelves from 2014 to 2018.
She explained that the suspected shooter "didn't do social media" and actually dodged the camera once while she recorded a video in the past.
"He put tape on his phone, on the camera. Always used to tell us the government was just watching," Reese told NBC News.
Police believe Bing walked into the breakroom and opened fire, killing coworkers Lorenzo Gamble, 43, Brian Pendleton, 38, Kellie Pyle, 52, Randall Blevins, 70, and a 16-year-old before turning the gun on himself.read more sun stories'KILLER' IN COURT Shock pics of nightclub 'shooter' revealed after dad's sick commentWALMART BLOODBATH Walmart shooting victims pictured with teen among six 'killed by manager'
He was found dead in civilian clothes alongside a handgun with multiple magazines.
Another former colleague Joshua Johnson said that Bing once made a haunting threat if he ever lost his job.
"He said if he ever got fired from his job he would retaliate and people would remember who he was," Johnson told CNN.
Police were pictured serving a search warrant at the Bing's home on Wednesday.Most read in The US SunDARK DEEDS Chilling note found by Walmart 'mass shooter's' body 'listed his targets'TIP TWIST Quinton Simon's grandmother 'tipped off FBI about toddler's mom' before arrestSUNNY SLIPS UP The View's Sunny gets abruptly corrected by producers after major mistake‘GET WELL SOON’ Al Roker looks unrecognizable in new Instagram post amid health battle
A source reportedly told WAVY news that a manifesto was discovered on his phone which described frustrations with a recent change in his employment status.
Officials have yet to confirm these reports.
Multiple employees have commented on Bing having issues with others and even earned a reputation at the location he had worked at since 2010, Walmart said in a statement.
Months before the shooting, Briana Tyler had received a warning from coworkers who said: "He was the manager to look out for because there was always something going on with him, just having an issue with someone."
An unnamed witness who was a new employee at the store told WAVY that the shooter had what was termed "issues" with other managers.
Despite these chilling signs, Reese said that she never saw a violent side to the shooter and described him as "a little off."
Bing actually appears to be laughing in a video Reese once took, and said: "We was driving in the back and I was parking it and everything. It's more fun than driving a car."
"He never talked about anything dealing with violence ever - always stuff about the government, his weight, his family. Stuff like that," Reese said.
Now, the mourning former coworker has taken to Facebook to share her condolences.
"It's sad .. I really am hurt about this ... BRIAN .. RANDY .. Lorenzo .... I love y'all .. glad I met and worked with y'all for them 4 years," she wrote.
"This s*** is really real."
Victim Lorenzo Gamble's mother said of her son: "My quiet baby Lorenzo is gone he work there for 15 years, he was going transfer to Grassfield.
"They need get rid of guns, too much killing all over this land. Now his sons is loss without him."
She later added: "Missing my baby right now, life is not same without my son. I can't say goodbye."
A friend of another victim shared a heartbreaking message: "I called to check on you, I texted just to make sure you were OK and I found out you are gone.
"This hurts RIH my friend Brian Pendleton "note to heaven" I'm still gonna make that hat I promised you last week."'SENSELESS' SHOOTING
Aside from the six victims who lost their lives, four people are being treated in area hospitals with unknown conditions, police said on Wednesday.
The store was open to the public at the time of the shooting and is presumed to have been busy as shoppers hastily prepared for Thanksgiving, police said.
Police said about 50 people were at the store at the time of the shooting.
Chesapeake mayor Rick West called the shooting senseless.
"I am devastated by the senseless act of violence that took place late last night in our City," he said on Twitter. "My prayers are with all those affected - the victims, their family, their friends, and their coworkers.
"I am grateful for the quick actions taken by our first responders who rushed to the scene. Chesapeake is a tight-knit community and we are all shaken by this news. Together, we will support each other throughout this time. Please keep us in your prayers."
The motive behind the mass shooting remains unknown.Read More on The US SunTURKEY DAY Major stars set to perform at Thanksgiving Day parade - see route and lineupWALMART BLOODBATH Walmart shooting victims pictured with teen among six 'killed by manager'
Walmart told The U.S. Sun: "We are focused on doing everything we can to support our associates and their families at this time. The alleged shooter has been identified as Andre Bing. We can confirm that he was a Walmart associate.
"Andre’s position with the company was overnight team lead and he’s been employed with us since 2010. We are thankful for the local first responders and will continue to work with local law enforcement as they continue their investigation."Topics

Lynsey Addario Wants Her Photographs to Show Politicians the Raw Truth of War
In one photograph stand two women in bright blue burqas billowing in the wind on the side of a mountain in Afghanistan, awaiting transport to a hospital, where one of the women will soon give birth. Their car broke down en route to the hospital, and soon they’ll catch a ride with Lynsey Addario, the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist who took this picture of them in 2009, with sweeping blue skies and wispy clouds stretching seemingly endlessly behind them.
This photo and others—of volunteer fighters lined up outside a base in Benghazi before clashing with troops aligned with dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, or of Eyerus, a 40-year-old woman swathed in a sheer, cream-colored scarf covering half of her face as she recovers from being captured and raped by Eritrean soldiers in 2021—can be viewed at an exhibit of Addario’s work at the SVA Chelsea Gallery in New York.
The exhibit, which spans her more-than-two-decade career and includes photographs, notes, video, and audio, and even a weighted flak jacket Addario has used for protection on the front lines, is not for the faint of heart. Addario, 49, has worked in over 80 countries, on five continents, and her photos of atrocities, wounded soldiers, maternal mortality, the climate crisis, and more, can at times be alarming.
For Addario, that’s the whole point.
“I’m shooting for proof, for documentation. I’m shooting to create awareness for the rest of the world. I’m shooting so policymakers can see those images and bear witness to them through my lens,” said Addario, who spoke briefly over the phone with The Daily Beast twice in November, including once from Ukraine, where she was on assignment covering Russia’s war. “I’m shooting to give a voice to people who have something to say.”
