A state trooper and a gunman are dead after an 'active shooter' situation at a Greyhound bus station in Virginia, Thursday afternoon, state police said. Two civilians were also injured during the shooting, which took place around 2:45 p.m. ET Thursday afternoon at the bus station in Richmond, Virginia, State Police Spokeswoman Corinne Geller said. Officials said the shooting happened near the end of a counter-drug training mission for state police. Part of the training involves approaching civilians and talking to them. When a state trooper in uniform walked up to one man at the entrance to the bus station, the man pulled a gun and shot the officer at close range.
