A state trooper and a gunman are dead after an “active shooter” situation at a Greyhound bus station in Virginia, Thursday afternoon, state police said.

“It’s with an incredibly heavy heart tonight that I announce to you the loss of Police Trooper Chad Dermyer,” Virginia State Police Superintendent Steven Flaherty said at a press conference Thursday night.

Dermyer, 37, died as a result of sustaining multiple gunshot wounds during the Thursday afternoon shooting, Flaherty said.

Two civilian women were also injured during the incident, which took place around 2:45 p.m. ET Thursday afternoon at the bus station in Richmond, Virginia, State Police Spokeswoman Corinne Geller said at an earlier press conference.

Flaherty said Dermyer had been taking part in a police training mission before the shooting.
