Here’s more from WRIC:
A manhunt is underway at the University of Virginia (UVA), where the school is currently on lockdown in response to a deadly shooting that occurred on its Charlottesville campus Sunday night.
Three people were killed and two more were taken to the hospital with injuries after the tragic shooting occurred near the heart of campus, on Culbreth Road, just before 11 p.m.
Police say the suspect, identified as Christopher Darnell Jones, is still on the run and is considered armed and dangerous.
Jones is currently enrolled as a student at UVA, where he was a member of the football team in 2018. The 5-foot-9-inch, 195-pound man is from Petersburg, where he played linebacker and running back at Petersburg High School for his senior year. He also has ties to Henrico County, where he spent his first three years of high school at Varina.
Jones was the only suspect identified in the deadly Sunday night shooting. The University of Virginia campus remains on lockdown almost 12 hours after the shooting, with students sheltering in place across school grounds.
Classes at the university were canceled Monday, and Charlottesville and Albemarle County schools were closed “out of an abundance of caution” as the manhunt continued.
The University of Virginia Police Department is advising the public to call 911, and not approach if you see Jones. He was last known to be wearing a burgundy jacket, blue jeans and red shoes, and police said he may be driving a black SUV with the Virginia license plate number TWX-3580.
Once police catch this guy the media won’t care anymore because he’s not a white supremacist. So prepare for this to quickly fade from the headlines.
