The University of Virginia’s police chief announced on Monday that the suspect in a shooting that killed three members of the school’s football team is in custody, ending an hours-long manhunt that triggered a campus-wide lockdown.
At a press conference in Charlottesville, Va., UVA Police Chief Timothy Longo had just given a description of the suspect, Christopher Darnell Jones, a 22-year-old student and former football player, and of the vehicle Jones was believed to have been driving. Longo was then informed that Jones had been taken into custody.
