Police in Chesapeake say the gunman, who apparently shot himself, was dead when they found him.
There was no clear motive for the shooting, which also put four people in the hospital.
The store was busy just before the attack Tuesday night as shoppers stocked up ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Employee Briana Tyler says the stocking team gathered in the break room when her manager turned around and opened fire on the staff.
