A Virginia state trooper who was shot when a man pulled out a gun Thursday afternoon at a Greyhound bus station in Richmond, Virginia, state police said Thursday night.

Virginia State Police Superintendent Col. Steven Flaherty says the trooper, 37-year-old Chad Dermyer, died Thursday after being shot multiple times.

State Police have said two civilians were also shot at the terminal. The gunman was shot dead by two other troopers.

State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said earlier in the day the trooper, who was already at the station, met a man just inside the entrance. Geller said the trooper was talking to the suspect when the man opened fire.
