RICHMOND, Va.—The man who authorities say opened fire on a Virginia State Police trooper Thursday at a Greyhound bus station in Richmond, Virginia, has died, Corinne Geller with the Virginia State Police told reporters.

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 after being shot multiple times.

Richmond Police Chief Alfred Durham said at least six people were shot when a suspect opened fire inside the bus station in the 2910 N. Boulevard at 2:45 p.m.

Images showed law enforcement on the scene. Police cars blocked streets and yellow tape cordoned off the area.

A spokeswoman for Greyhound had confirmed earlier that there was an ongoing incident. The station is closed.

“We will re-route customers as possible and we will reissue tickets once we resume service if you are supposed to travel to or from Richmond today,” the company said.
