Survivor of Chesapeake Walmart Shooting Files $50M Lawsuit

One week after the shooting at a Chesapeake Walmart that left six people dead and several others wounded - a survivor is now filing a $50 million lawsuit.

Donya Prioleau was in the break room when the suspect opened fire on his co-workers.

She says she feels Walmart was negligent by keeping her manager employed.

She filed a complaint against him back on Sept. 10 for bizarre and inappropriate comments he allegedly made.

The lawsuit goes on to say prior to the shooting, the gunman allegedly made statements to other employees that if he was fired he would retaliate and people would remember his name.

Walmart says right now they’re focused on supporting all of their employees and that they’re reviewing the complaint and will respond in court.

Team USA Beats Iran, Advances in World Cup

The U.S. Men's National Team kicks it into high gear, as they faced a win or go home situation in their first World Cup appearance in 8 years.

Team USA is advancing to the next round of the World Cup.

The U.S. Men’s National Soccer team defeated Iran one to zero.

The victory in the win-or-go-home match means the U.S. will play in the knockout round of 16 - a huge achievement for the U.S. program, which failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The lone goal in the match was scored by Team USA’s Christian Pulisic late in the first half.

The Americans will play the Netherlands Saturday.
