VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) The resignation email the gunman sent hours before the shooting at a municipal building was brief, unremarkable and didnt contain anything that foreshadowed the bloody rampage to come, a city official told The Associated Press today.
The document itself is part of the investigative file, city Communications Director Julie Hill said in an email. If detectives are able to clear it for release, we will provide it.
Twelve people were killed and several others wounded when DeWayne Craddock, a soft-spoken engineer with the Virginia Beach utilities department, opened fire on his co-workers as they finished up their work week Friday. Craddock was killed during a gunbattle with police.
