Suspect at large after shooting at University of Virginia, police say

A suspect is on the run after a shooting at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville on Sunday night, authorities said.

Multiple law enforcement agencies are “actively searching for the suspect” — identified as Chris Darnell Jones, Jr. — who is considered “armed and dangerous,” according to the University of Virginia Police Department, which ordered local residents to “shelter in place.”

University of Virginia officials confirmed to ABC News early Monday that the situation remains active.

Jones is described as a Black man wearing a burgundy jacket, blue jeans and red shoes. He may be driving a black SUV with Virginia license plates, police said.

The shooting was reported on the university’s campus in the area of Culbreth Road late Sunday, according to police. There was no official word on victims or victims’ conditions.
