The Walmart gunman’s youngest victim was a 16-year-old boy who was due to start the nightshift on Tuesday when he was shot dead along with five of his colleagues.

Andre Bing, 31, killed himself after shooting ten of his colleagues – six of them fatally – at the store in Chesapeake, Virginia.

His victims include Lorenzo Gamble, Brian Pendleton, Kellie Pyle, Randall Blevins, and Tyneka Johnson, and the unnamed 16-year-old boy.

Four people who were shot survived the attack and remain in the hospital today. Among them is Blake Williams, 23, whose family say he is clinging to life.

His family told The New York Post that they expect they will have to turn his life support off today.

They added that he wasn’t meant to be in the store on Tuesday night and ordinarily works the day shift, but had traded with a friend.

‘He never made it home. He wasn’t even supposed to be here. Wrong place, wrong time,’ his cousin, Shannon Cheetham, said.

Sarah Walker, another survivor, is also in the hospital.

Her friends say she was shot five times and is also in critical condition.

Bing’s deadly manifesto, which has not yet been made public, contained claims that his co-workers at the supercenter in Sam’s Circuit, Chesapeake, were harassing him.

One of Bing’s neighbors has also described the moment the gunman left for his rampage in silence. And a victim’s neighbor revealed to DailyMail.com that the victim would regularly argue with his manager about having to work at weekends.

Disgruntled manager Bing, 31, walked into the break room of the superstore in Chesapeake, Virginia, before opening fire and killing six other workers just after 10pm on Tuesday evening.

The ‘silent’ gunman also had a list of names of those he wanted to target. He murdered Lorenzo Gamble, Brian Pendleton, Kellie Pyle, Randall Blevins, and Tyneka Johnson.

Bing also shot and killed a 16-year-old boy, who has not yet been identified because he is a minor, as part of the violent rampage on Tuesday.

A neighbor who has lived next to Bing described the moment she saw him leave for his usual late shift in silence.

Speaking to DailyMail.com, she said: ‘I am shocked, especially when I saw the amount of people that were dead. I was even more shocked when I found out it was him.

‘I only realized when I saw the FBI here this morning. My daughter saw them get here last night with the battering ram but I didn’t hear anything.

‘He kept himself to himself, he was always alone. No one else lived in that house.

‘There was one guy who was there a few months ago but that was it. It’s only been him.

‘I would see him mowing his lawn and things but he would never talk. He was odd.

‘I tried to talk to him but he just wasn’t interested at all. I saw him last night as he left for work, I know he worked at Walmart.

‘I’m so glad that I didn’t speak to him. He seemed as he normally did, just got in his car and drove off. Nothing seemed different.

‘Whole time he was here I never saw him with a gun or anything at all. It’s shocking. It’s a nice quiet area.’

A neighbor of Brian Pendleton, one of the victims who was shot dead in the break room, paid tribute to him as a ‘wonderful man’ – who had clashed with his manager over working night shifts.

The neighbor, named Patrice, said: ‘Brian was a wonderful man, he was always smiling. He loved his job, he was very dedicated. 

‘He did often say he was having issues with a manager at work, who wouldn’t give him the weekends off.

‘Obviously I don’t know if it was the same manager. It’s just awful so close to Thanksgiving. He lost his sister a few months ago so it’s awful. He and his wife split up about three years ago and never had any children.

‘He lived alone, and was a wonderful man. I gave him a ride to work and he insisted on giving me gas money when he got paid. It’s just the kind of guy he was, he was wonderful and caring.

‘The rental office didn’t believe it was him at first, it was awful when we heard. He would get his cab every night for his shift, the same cab.

‘He’d be sat on the step here when I came home. He was a great guy and it’s awful what’s happened to him. I’m just his neighbor and I’m still trying to process what’s happened. It hits so much harder around this time of year, with Christmas or Thanksgiving.’

The mother of slain staffer Lorenzo Gamble, 43, lamented how her son, who worked at the store for 15 years and was set to transfer to another location, had left behind a family of his own.

Police have identified five of the six victims killed during a mass shooting at a Virginia Walmart Tuesday, hours after naming the disgruntled manager who carried out the killing. The sixth deceased victim was a 16-year-old boy, the city said. His name and photo were withheld due to his age. The victims range in age from 16 to 70

‘My quiet baby Lorenzo is gone,’ the mourning mom wrote in a post to Facebook Wednesday morning. 

‘He worked there for 15 years, he was going transfer to Grassfield. Now his sons is loss [sic] without him.’

The boyfriend of 52-year-old victim Kellie Pyle, identified Wednesday by DailyMail.com as Brian Baker, shared a heartfelt post remembering his partner.

‘Until we see each other again my angel,’ a caption for the tribute read.

The mother of Brian, a janitor at the Walmart who would have turned 39 next week, gave an emotional phone to ABC in which she hailed her son as selfless, and someone who would give you the shirt off their back.

‘He had a real big heart,’ Michelle Johnson told the outlet. ‘Anybody that wanted to laugh, or just want company, he’d buy you lunch. He’d buy you anything in a minute.’

Pendleton worked at the Walmart for nearly 11 years as a custodian and ‘loved his job,’ according to his mother.

‘He was just a hard worker and a good kid,’ she said.

The gunman opened fire in the break room which is in the back of the store at around 10.12pm. The first 911 calls came in at 10.12pm and cops were at the scene at 10.14pm. They entered the store at 10.16pm, by which time the gunman had killed himself

The mom went on to describe the horror she and her husband went through Tuesday when they received a phone call from a family friend notifying her that there had been a shooting at the store. They were soon notified that their son has sustain unspecified injuries and was being treated at nearby Norfolk General Hospital, where they quickly drove to see him.

‘We waited, and then the police came out with a nurse and they took us to a side room and that’s when they told us that he didn’t make it,’ an emotional Johnson said, reportedly holding back tears.

‘I just wondered, was he afraid at that time? I know my son. I didn’t want him to be afraid, and I didn’t want him to hurt.’

Tyneka Johnson, a 22-year-old worker at the store, was remembered fondly by her family as ‘the nicest person, who never bothered anyone.’

Rashawnda Ruffin, her cousin, wrote in a post to Facebook: ‘Damn couss I’m sorry this happened to you so soon you had so many plans but I guess god had other plans. So this means no more phone calls? No more sending pictures of your tattoos and I pick them out?

‘I’m just lost of words it was nothing but laughs and jokes LONG LIVE TYNEKA.’

It is not clear if the other two victims, 70-year-old Blevins and the 16-year-old minor, were also workers at the store.

Aside from the six casualties, police said that an additional four people who had been in the breakroom at the time of shooting remained hospitalized Wednesday morning. At least six people in total were transported to hospitals for treatment. Bing’s body was discovered by cops in the breakroom along with the bodies of two of the victims.

FBI agents swooped on Bings three-bedroom $300,000 property where he lived alone at around 11pm on Tuesday night, shortly after the mass killing.

Locals describe seeing the SWAT team use a battering ram to break down the door of the property before scouring it for evidence.

Pictures show authorities searching a shed at the rear of the property, removing bags full of clothing and water bottles.

Another neighbor said that Bing was a ‘loner’, adding: ‘I never saw him at all other than mowing his lawn. It was a shock to hear about it, but I never really knew him. He kept himself to himself’.

Another, called Marcus, told DailyMail.com: ‘I was super surprised by the whole thing.

‘You hear about it on the news but you don’t expect it will be near you. Especially as this street is so quiet.

‘I didn’t know him or see him at all. I did always think it was strange that the two cars didn’t move out the front.

‘I never saw them move ever. One was a dark SUV and the other was some kind of light Ford.

‘I think he was there alone, I never saw anyone else. It’s such a quiet area.’

People in the local community also gathered for a candle light vigil hosted by Bishop Susan Haynes at St. Thomas Chesapeake church on Wednesday night.
