Cameron Dooley shot and killed five members of his family across two locations in the town of Chesapeake, Virginia. The horrific incident unfolded on the evening of January 26. The deceased have been named as his father Steven Todd, mother Lori, brother Landon, sister Brooke and grandmother Doris Dooley. Later, Dooley took his own life after shooting himself.
The Daily Press in Newport, Virginia, reports that officers tried for hours to negotiate with Dooley. A SWAT Team was also called to the scene. When cops eventually entered the house, they found the other family members dead. All of the victims in the attack were killed by Cameron Dooley.
Speaking to reporter Stefania Okolie, a neighbor said the Dooley family were wonderful. The home where the standoff took place was owned by a former pastor, Rev. Allen Dooley, who died in 2010. The family were a driving force behind the local Temple Baptist Church.
