PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Flags in Virginia will fly at half-staff through Thursday, November 17 in memory of the victims of the University of Virginia shooting.
Three UVA football players, D’Sean Perry, Lavel Davis Jr. and Devin Chandler, were fatally shot Sunday night in a charter bus that had just come back from a field trip. Two other people were injured.
The suspect, Christopher Darnell Jones, was arrested Monday morning after an hours long manhunt. Police said he had been on their radar, after he was reported as being in possession of a gun.
The university canceled classes for Monday and Tuesday and has set up counseling services for the university community. Classes will resume on Wednesday.
