RICHMOND, Va. – A Virginia State trooper who was shot when a suspect opened fire at a Greyhound bus station in Richmond Thursday afternoon has died, multiple sources told WTVR CBS 6 News.

Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne N. Geller said four people, including the suspect, were shot when troopers were called to the bus station in the 2910 N. Boulevard at 2:45 p.m.

Geller said a trooper, who was already at the station, met a man just inside the entrance. Geller said the trooper was talking to the suspect when he pulled out a gun and shot the trooper.

Geller said two nearby troopers returned fire on the suspect.

The trooper, two civilians and the suspect were transported to VCU Medical Center.

Geller said the suspect died at the hospital. She maintained the trooper suffered life-threatening injures. The two civilians suffered non life-threatening injuries.

Multiple sources told WTVR CBS 6 reporter Jon Burkett that state police were at the bus station for a drug interdiction training exercise when gunfire erupted.
