PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) — The Latest on a triple stabbing at a plasma center in Petersburg, Virginia (all times local):
A Virginia prosecutor says a 20-year-old man walked into a plasma donation center in Petersburg and randomly stabbed three people during a community appreciation cookout, then waited outside for police.
Petersburg police identified the suspect as Jairique Shannon. He’s been charged with three counts of malicious wounding in the attack Thursday at Octapharma Plasma.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Cheryl Wilson said the suspect had donated plasma at the center in the past. She said he walked into the center Thursday and asked to use the restroom, then came out and began stabbing people with a long knife.
