Employee who survived shooting sues Walmart

Norfolk, Va. ( Associated Press) – A Walmart employee who survived last week’s massacre at a Virginia store has filed a $50 million lawsuit against the company for hiring the shooter – a store supervisor – “who used violence, threats, and bizarre Behaviour

The lawsuit, apparently the first stemming from the shooting, was filed Tuesday in Chesapeake Circuit Court by Donya Priolue. Walmart, which is based in Bentonville, Arkansas, did not immediately respond to a written request for comment on the litigation.

Prioleau’s lawsuit alleges that he experienced post-traumatic panic disorder, including physical and emotional distress, from witnessing the incident in the store’s break room on November 22.

The lawsuit states, “The bullet passed through plaintiff Donia Priolue’s face and left side, barely hitting her.” “He saw many of his co-workers brutally murdered on either side of him.”

The lawsuit continues: “Ms. Prioleo looked into the eyes of one of her co-workers just after she was shot in the neck. Mrs. Prioleo saw the gunshot wound on her co-worker’s neck, bleeding, her co-worker’s helpless face Got a glimpse of wonder.

According to police, the store’s supervisor, Andre Bing, 31, fatally shot six employees and wounded several others before dying of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The lawsuit alleges that Bing “had a personal vendetta against several Walmart employees and maintained a ‘list of potential targets’ prior to the shooting.”
