12 people killed in Virginia Beach shooting

   
Police in Virginia Beach say the suspect in a deadly mass shooting at a municipal building was a disgruntled longtime employee of the city's Public Works Department.
     
The death toll currently stands at 12 after a victim died on the way to hospital.
     
Five others were injured -- including a police officer -- before police fatally shot the suspect.

   
Police Chief James Cervera says the suspect engaged in a ``long gunbattle'' with law enforcement officers, before being fatally wounded.
     
Cervera said he would release the suspect's name after authorities had contacted his family, but would mention the name only once.
