The shooter who wounded two individuals and killed three people on the University of Virginia campus Sunday night is being sought out. The suspect is still at large and is regarded as armed and dangerous, therefore the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville is currently on lockdown.
Just before midnight, Culbreth Road, close to the centre of campus, was the scene of a shooting, according to UVA’s emergency management office. University of Virginia student Christopher Darnell Jones has been named by UVA police as the shooting suspect.
He’s a Black man wearing a burgundy jacket, blue jeans, and red shoes. He may be operating a black SUV with the Virginia licence plate number TWX-3580, according to UVA police.
Former UVA football player Jones is from the Petersburg region. Before going to college, he played linebacker and running back at Petersburg High School. Jones is being sought by a number of law enforcement authorities, including UVA Police and VA State Police. A Virginia State Police helicopter, according to UVA Police, is in the air.
