FBI, Chesapeake Police Extending Timeline for Victims of Walmart Shooting to Identify Personal Belongings

(Chesapeake) The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Chesapeake Police Department (CPD) are extending the timeline for victims of the Chesapeake Walmart shooting to fill out a questionnaire identifying their belongings until Feruary 28, 2023. The previous date was set for Tuesday, February 7, 2023.

Many personal items were left at the scene of the November 22 shooting. To ensure all victims who were present can retrieve those items, such as bags and jackets, the FBI and CPD created a questionnaire late last year to help victims locate those items. The questionnaire can be accessed here.

CPD is the lead investigative agency in the case. The FBI continues to assist, including through victim services efforts. The FBI is legally mandated to identify victims of federal crimes that are under investigation and provide these victims with information, assistance services, and resources. The FBI’s Victim Services Division is uniquely suited to provide emergency assistance to victims of domestic and international terrorism and mass violence crimes due to its national and international scope and extensive experience in responding to victims of these crimes.

To provide investigative information to CPD and the FBI related to the shooting, call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
