Crazy to hear something like that happening in Galax. I just happened to be at that Wal-Mart on Thursday for the first time in probably 4 years. Couldn't believe when I read on the news what had happened. Hope the victim is able to make a recovery!

My mother is an employee who was working in the store when this crap happened. She has been freaking out ever since. It took two hours before I knew my mother was okay. A.G walked back to the dairy department and shot Rita and then shot her again when she started to run. He followed her back into the back employee section of the store. Rita is doing okay and is going to make it, praise God. I am sorry for the man's family. He may not of been a great person but God forgives and his family is suffering now. Just praise God it was not worse then it was.

Rita had two gunshot wounds, one in the chest and one in her face. Her dentures kept the one that hit her face from doing more harm. The employees of this store are great people and all of them are like a family. Rita was doing good this afternoon. It could of been a lot worse. He could of shot everyone he saw throughout the store. It is a shame though when a person has a restraining order against someone and they are not protected. He should of been arrested for staulking her. This could of been prevented.

You know it is sad that things like this does happen but the families of EVERYONE victum or suspect don't need people saying the things they are says! Each side has families and feelings and its a damn shame no one realizes that!!! Maybe we all should keep our hateful comments to ourselves!! Unless u have the REAL facts..... no of this 'I' think this is what happen or 'I' heard this and that.... that's not the truth! I feel very bad for both sides.... the side that just lost a father a son a grandparent.... that's horrible to wake up one day a know someone near and dear to your heart has killed themself... and the other side samething... idk what id think if I found out someone had shoot my sister my mother my grandmother.... any family member for that reason. I understand the hate and frustration but remember then wickes have family and feeling too!!! Just think of what they feel.... before u speak ill of the dead!

IT is a terrible thing.Who would have thought we would have heard of something like this in this community.
This had nothing to do with teenagers. And being a Christian does not prevent murders. If anything, it fuels them. The shooter was a Christian as well.
