Virginia State Police say a trooper has died after a shooting at a Greyhound bus station in Richmond.

Police Superintendent Col. Steven Flaherty says the trooper, Chad Dermyer, died Thursday after being shot multiple times.

State Police have said two civilians were also shot at the terminal. The gunman was shot dead by two other troopers.

Dermyer, 37, is being mourned in Michigan, where he grew up and formerly served as a police officer. Police say Dermyer, the father of two children, was a native of Jackson, Michigan, and a former Marine who had served on the force in Jackson and Newport News, Virginia.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports that Dermyer kept in touch with friends in Michigan and visited last summer. Matt Miller, who lives in Jackson, played soccer with and against Dermyer since they were children. He described Dermyer as a good guy and a strong athlete.

The Greyhound station is west of the city’s downtown area, across from Richmond’s minor league baseball stadium and within a former industrial area. It’s on a main thoroughfare connecting a residential district to the stadium and nearby restaurants.

City Councilwoman Rita Trammell was at the scene of the shooting and says it was a “senseless act.”
