State Trooper Killed In Shooting At Virginia Greyhound Bus Station

The shooter is also dead.

A state trooper was killed in a shooting Thursday at a Greyhound bus station in Richmond, Virginia. The suspect also was killed.

Around 2:45 p.m., a Virginia state trooper approached a man standing in the entranceway of the bus station. The suspect pulled a gun and shot the trooper, said Corinne Geller, spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police. She said two other troopers returned fire, and the suspect was transported to the hospital, where he later died.

Two civilians were being treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police later confirmed that the trooper, Chad Dermyer, 37, had died from his wounds.
