“A Virginia State trooper encountered a male subject just inside the entrance way of the Greyhound bus station. While he was talking to this individual, the individual pulled out a gun and shot the trooper. Two troopers standing nearby returned gunfire,” Geller said. “The shooting suspect was transported to the VCU medical Center where he died Thursday afternoon.”
Two other people, both civilians, suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the attack, Geller said.
Earlier local media reports that the trooper had died, that a second trooper had been injured and that as many as six people in total were injured in the attack were inaccurate, Geller said.
She declined to answer questions as to what may have provoked the attack or to confirm earlier reports that the police had been conducting a training exercise around the bus station at the time.
