After an ordinary workday turned deadly at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, survivors and investigators are spending the Thanksgiving holiday questioning the motive of an employee who opened fire on coworkers, killing six before fatally turning the gun on himself.

Employees were preparing for an overnight shift Tuesday when a manager opened fire with a handgun in the break room just after 10 p.m., officials said.
