Several universities throughout the Commonwealth are supporting Hoos after a Sunday night shooting at a UVA parking garage along Culbreth Road that left three dead and two hurt.

The incident unfolded at about 10:30 p.m. on a charter bus full of students returning to Charlottesville after seeing a play in Washington, D.C., a little over 30 hours after Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Panthers, according to the Associated Press.
