Students were returning from a field trip at around 10:30 p.m. when gunfire broke out on the charter bus in a parking garage. The violence prompted the university to urge everyone to shelter in place. No one left the buildings they were in until 10:30 a.m. on November 14.
Timothy Longo, the UVA Police Chief, held a press conference just a half hour after the shelter in place order was lifted. During the briefing, a captain of the police department interrupted Longo to tell him they had the suspected gunman, Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., in custody. The chief didn’t mention where police had apprehended the alleged gunman aside from indicating that it was off campus.
The suspect once played football for the school but hadn’t been a part of the team for over a year. All of the gunman’s victims were on the UVA football team. Longo noted authorities had secured a warrant for Jones’ arrest, charging him with three counts of second-degree homicide and three counts of committing a felony while possessing a handgun.
