The Walmart shooter blamed his co-workers for comparing him to Jeffrey Dahmer, it has been revealed.

In a 'death note' released by police, Andre Bing said he was mocked by his colleagues, who said he reminded them of the notorious cannibal.

Bing had worked for Walmart for 12 years, and was a night manager at the Chesapeake store.

Police revealed that the 31-year-old purchased a 9mm handgun on Tuesday (22 November), hours before he entered the break room of the store and began 'spraying' bullets, killing six people, before himself.

And now a letter, titled 'Death Note' by Bing, which was found in the suspect's phone, has been released.

In the note, Bing blamed his crimes on the people who made fun of him.

He wrote: "They laughed at me and said that I was like Jeffrey Dahmer … Sorry everyone but I did not plan this I promise things just fell in place like I was led by the Satan,”

Dahmer was the subject of a recent Netflix series that chronicled his brutal murder spree, which saw him kill 17 young men before he was eventually convicted and later murdered in prison in 1994.

Bing went on: “My true intent was never to murder anyone believe it or not, I was actually one of the most loving people in the world if you would get to know me.

“My only wish would have been to start over from scratch and that my parents would have paid closer attention to my social deficit."

He said that he regretted not getting married, adding: "I just wanted a wife that was equally yoked as I and obsessed over thought; however, I didn’t deserve a wife."

And he claimed that he planned on sparing the life of one of his co-workers, who had been diagnosed with cancer, writing: "I have a special place in my heart for her because my mother died from cancer.”

Concluding the note, Bing said: "My God forgive me for what I’m going to do…"

As well as the note, police also revealed that 16-year-old Fernando Chavez-Barron had died in the shooting.

Others who were killed by Bing were: Brian Pendleton, 38; Randy Belvins, 70; Kellie Pyle, 52; Lorenzo Gamble, 43; and Tyneka Johnson, 22.

Co-worker Jessica Wilczewski survived the shooting.

She told the media that she felt Bing was targeting people, even those who seemed to already be dead.

"The way he was acting — he was going hunting," she said. "The way he was looking at people’s faces and the way he did what he did, he was picking people out.”
