A 34-year-old man from Illinois was confirmed as the shooter who opened fire on police yesterday in a Richmond, Virginia bus station. 

James Brown III of Aurora, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, was shot and killed after he opened fire during a state police training exercise at the Greyhound station.

Authorities said the officers were conducting an interdiction exercise when Trooper Chad Dermyer approached Brown, who pulled out a handgun and fatally shot him. 

Dermyer, a 37-year-old married father of two, was a veteran who served four years in the Marine Corps. 


Brown's aunt told WTVR: "He pretty much thought he wanted to be infamous... in terms of having a showdown. He always praised those people who got into shootouts with police." 

Brown reportedly had a long criminal history, including murder and domestic battery charges. Police are still working on a motive for the shooting.

Two women in the terminal were wounded, but will survive.
