A rambling note left by the Chesapeake, Va., Walmart killer claims that he suffered from harassment and "betrayal" prior to his rampage and that he carried out the killing as if he was "led by Satan." 

The note, released by Chesapeake police this week was discovered on Andre Bing's phone after the Tuesday killing, where he shot and killed at least six people before turning the gun on himself. 

"Sorry God, I've failed you, this was not your fault but my own," the note reads. "I failed to listen to the groans of the holy spirit which made me a poor representation of You."

The shooter in the note claimed to have been "harassed by idiots," included his co-workers, who he claimed "orcastraighted [sic]" harassment at him; he also alluded to a "betrayal" by an individual whose name police redacted. 

Bing in the note claims that his “true intent was never to murder anyone” and that he “did not plan this,” but that the massacre “just fell in place like I was led by Satan.”

The killer also alleges that his “phone was hacked” at some point, though he does not specify by whom.
