RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia State Police say a trooper has died after a shooting at a Greyhound bus station in Richmond.

Virginia State Police Superintendent Col. Steven Flaherty says the trooper, Chad Dermyer, died Thursday, March 30, 2016 after being shot multiple times.

State Police have said two civilians were also shot at the terminal. The gunman was shot dead by two other troopers.

The Greyhound station is west of the city’s downtown area, across from Richmond’s minor league baseball stadium and within a former industrial area. It’s on a main thoroughfare connecting a residential district to the stadium and nearby restaurants.

City Councilwoman Reva Trammell was at the scene of the shooting and says it was a “senseless act.”
