At least two employees were still hospitalized following this week’s mass shooting at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, when a manager killed six coworkers before killing himself.

Minutes after 10 p.m. on Tuesday, two days before Thanksgiving, the shooting started in the staff break area, as several employees were about to start their nighttime shift.

In addition to the six employees who passed away, other people are still receiving medical care.

One victim was hospitalized in critical condition on Thanksgiving Day, while another was in “fair/improving condition,” Chesapeake city officials said in a tweet Thursday. Another victim was released Wednesday, a Sentara Norfolk General Hospital spokesperson told media.

“On this Thanksgiving, we are extra thankful for our community and we are thinking of every victim of the Walmart shooting and their family members,” Chesapeake city officials said online.

“Today we are focused only of those hurt by Tuesday’s tragic event, but the police investigation continues,” officials said, adding that additional information will be provided Friday.

Authorities have identified the deceased as Randy Blevins, 70, Lorenzo Gamble, 43, Tyneka Johnson, 22, Brian Pendleton, 38, Kellie Pyle, 52, and a 16-year-old child who is being kept anonymous due to his age.

Chesapeake officials have arranged a vigil for victims set for Monday evening at City Park while police investigate one of at least three mass shootings in Virginia this month.

“Chesapeake is a tightknit community and we are all shaken,” Mayor Rick West said in a message posted online earlier this week. “Together, we will support each other throughout this time.”
