UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA SHOOTING

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — A University of Virginia spokesperson has confirmed that a student who went on a field trip to see a play with classmates is the one suspected of opening fire inside the bus they were riding in when the group returned to campus. Spokesperson Brian Coy says the suspect in the shooting, Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., joined about two dozen other students who traveled about 120 miles from UVA’s campus in Charlottesville to Washington for the field trip Sunday. Police say Jones, a former member of the school’s football team, shot and killed three current team members and wounded two other students. By Sarah Rankin. SENT: 730 words, photos, video, audio.

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA SHOOTING-LOCKDOWN

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Students hid inside laboratory closets and dorm rooms across the University of Virginia after getting warnings of an active shooter. Responding to the immediate threat of an on-campus shooting was a moment they had prepared for since their first years of elementary school. But those students are now struggling to deal with the emotional trauma of an attack that killed three members of the school’s football team late Sunday. Police spent 12 hours searching for the suspect before taking a 22-year-old student into custody Monday morning. Students across the campus barricaded doors and slept in libraries during the search.

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA SHOOTING-VICTIMS

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Three University of Virginia football players killed in an on-campus shooting are being remembered by head football coach Tony Elliott as “incredible young men with huge aspirations and extremely bright futures.” Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr., and D’Sean Perry were returning from a class trip Sunday night when authorities say they were killed by a fellow student. The young men were athletes who’d been journeying through varying periods of transition in their college football careers. Davis was bouncing back from a season-ending injury. Perry had changed positions on the team. And Chandler had recently transferred in from the University of Wisconsin. By Hank Kurz Jr. and Ben Finley. SENT: 1,170 words, photos.
