Pilot Online reported:
A longtime city employee shot and killed 11 people and injured six others after opening fire late Friday afternoon in the public works building where he worked, police said. The man was then killed by officers after firing at them.
One officer was shot during the exchange, but was saved by his bulletproof vest, Police Chief James Cervera said during a news conference a couple of hours after the incident.
The mass shooting is the deadliest since the November attack at Borderline Bar & Grill in California, when 12 were killed. It is the deadliest in Virginia Beach history.
