Multiple people injured at Virginia bus station, suspected gunman dead - media | Reuters

RICHMOND, Va. Multiple people including two state troopers were taken to a Richmond, Virginia, hospital for treatment on Thursday following a shooting at a bus station and the suspected gunman was killed, according to police and local media.

Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said she did not know the nature or severity of the injuries to the troopers.

Local television WTVR CBS 6, citing unnamed sources, said the suspect has died.

A spokesman for VCU Medical Center in Richmond said the hospital was expecting patients from the shooting, but declined to release further information.

Three ambulances were on scene, the NBC 12 reported on its website and television images showed the area around the bus station cordoned off with large numbers of police presence.

"We've been told to stay inside and lock the doors," Michael Bickett, who said he works directly across the street from the loading area from the buses said in a direct Twitter message. "A co-worker was eating lunch in his car when he saw Greyhound Workers and customers rushing out the side door. He figured that was a good time to get back inside."
