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.
A suspect, identified as a UVA student, was taken into custody after a nearly 12-hour manhunt with authorities ordering students to shelter in place and conducting a building-by-building and grounds search of the campus, officials told 10 News.
The shooting claimed the lives of UVA wide receivers Lavel Davis Jr. and Devin Chandler as well as UVA linebacker and defensive end D’Sean Perry. To learn more about all three victims, click here.
