The gunman who opened fire in a Virginia Beach government building, killing 12 people, had notified a superior of his intention to leave his job, officials said Saturday.The assailant, who worked as a civil engineer, was an employee "in good standing" in his department, said City Manager Dave Hansen, who described the man's performance as "satisfactory."In response to a reporter's question, he said the shooter had notified his chain of command of his intention to quit via email on Friday, hours before the shooting.Authorities have identified the attacker as 40-year-old DeWayne Craddock. He later graduated from Old Dominion University with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering.Scott said he worked in a different division from Craddock, whom he described as quiet, polite and a "nice guy." Scott said he thought Craddock was in good standing at work and had never heard negative reports about him.A handwritten note was posted Saturday at the suspect's home expressing condolences to the shooting victims on behalf of his family.Hundreds of people attended Saturday prayer vigils for the dead.
