Police say the primary suspect in the Walmart shooting left a note addressed to God.

The prime suspect in the mass shooting that left six people dead at a Walmart Supercenter in Chesapeake, Virginia, left a “death note” addressed to God on his phone, police said Friday.

Andre Bing, 31, said that his actions were not planned, but things had fallen into place like he was being led by Satan, in the rambling note that was released by the Chesapeake Police Department on Friday. Bing added that he had failed to listen to the Holy Spirit.

In the document, Bing also said that he had lost his dignity after his phone was hacked.

Signing off, he asked for God’s forgiveness for what he was about to do.

Police said in a statement that they found the note when “detectives conducted a forensic analysis of the suspect’s phone which was located at the scene.”

The force could not say when the note was written and the motive for the deadly shooting was not immediately clear.

Bing, a longtime Walmart employee, opened fire at the store on Tuesday, killing six people and injuring several others before dying of a self-inflicted wound.

He was found dead in a break room with two other fatalities, the city of Chesapeake tweeted Wednesday. Another victim was found dead near the front of the store and the three other shooting victims were rushed to local hospitals but died later from their injuries, city officials said.

“The suspect used a 9mm handgun,” police said in Friday’s statement, adding that it was “legally purchased from a local store” on Tuesday morning.

At his home, authorities also discovered a box of ammo “and several items in regard to the 9 mm handgun,” according to the statement.

According to the statement, there were still two patients in the hospital, one of whom was in serious condition while the other was doing better.

When asked about Bing’s note by The Associated Press, Walmart issued the following statement: “There is nothing that can justify murdering innocent life. Our attention is still on the mourning families and helping our colleagues get through this trying period.

Bing was an overnight team leader who had worked for Walmart since 2010, according to a different statement released by the business on Wednesday.

Shaundrayia Reese, 27, who described Bing as “strange,” added on Wednesday that she worked at the business from late 2014 to 2018 and spent her four years on the nighttime stock team with him.

Bing “sort of hopped out of the way” to avoid being on camera in a video she once took of her coworkers, according to her, who claimed Bing “didn’t use social media.”

Reese claimed that even though he “was a touch off,” he had not discussed violence.

A vigil for those who died in the shooting will be held on Monday at 6 p.m. at City Park in Chesapeake “so that we can honor the victims and grieve together,” the city of Chesapeake said in a tweet.

“Today we are focused only on those hurt by Tuesday’s tragic event, but the police investigation continues,” the city said.
