The suspect in a shooting at the University of Virginia that killed three members of the football team was taken into custody Monday, more than 13 hours after he allegedly gunned down fellow students in a bus as they returned from a school field trip, authorities said.
University President Jim Ryan and law enforcement officials were in the middle of a late morning news conference when they received word that Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. had been apprehended.
Two other students were wounded in the shooting late Sunday night, which happened near a campus parking garage as a charter bus full of student returned from seeing a play in Washington, D.C. for a class field trip. Ryan said one of the students was in critical condition and the other student was in good condition at a local hospital.
The shooting touched off an intense manhunt, with authorities ordering students to shelter in place and conducting a building-by-building and grounds search of the campus. Students stayed in place for more than 12 hours until the order was lifted late Monday morning.
When the news conference began, university police chief Timothy Longo Sr. said officials were “reasonably confident” the shooter was no longer on school grounds and urged the public to call 911 immediately if they saw him or the black SUV he was believed to be driving. Longo then received word that Jones had been apprehended.
“Just give me a moment to thank God, breathe a sigh of relief,” he said.
Longo said police have obtained arrest warrants for Jones charging him with three counts of murder and three counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony. He said the bus filled with students had just returned to campus when the shooting began.
“Someone among them chose to do an act of violence,” he said.

Police have in custody a University of Virginia student suspected of fatally shooting three football players and wounding two other people late Sunday at the school’s main campus in Charlottesville as a bus returned from a class field trip, school officials said.

The two wounded students are being treated at UVA Medical Center, with one in critical condition and the other in good condition, he said, declining to name them.
“This is a sad, shocking and tragic day for our UVA community,” Ryan said. “Let me say how deeply sorry I am for the victims and for their family and friends.”

A Texas attorney told his pregnant wife the water he gave her was cloudy because of dirty pipes, court docs say. He was later indicted for slipping an abortion drug in her drinks.
A Houston attorney was indicted by a grand jury for slipping abortion medicine into his wife’s drink on Thursday.
A Harris County grand jury indicted Mason Herring, 38, on two felony counts of assault of a pregnant person, according to the Associated Press . Herring was arrested in May and released on a $30,000 bond, ABC reported, but he was indicted earlier this week.
An attorney for Herring did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment on Saturday.
Herring’s wife, who was pregnant, told police that Herring began ranting about hydration and offering her water in March, according to the AP. Herring’s wife told police that she became severely ill after drinking from one cup that he gave her which appeared cloudy.
Court documents alleged that Herring told his wife that the cloudiness of the water could be the result of dirty water pipes, the AP reported. Herring’s wife began refusing other drinks that he offered her after she became suspicious, court documents said.
She later found packaging for a drug containing misoprostol, a drug that is used to induce abortion. Misoprostol can cause diarrhea, stomach cramps, or nausea according to the Mayo Clinic , and can cause more severe side effects like body aches, chest pain, heavy bleeding, and painful menstruation, among others.
According to the AP, Herring and his wife were separated, and court documents showed text messages from him to her that he was unhappy about the pregnancy.
Herring approached his wife at least six times over the course of a month encouraging her to drink the suspicious water, WJHG reported . She said she did not drink them all and instead kept some as evidence.
“The complainant stated the defendant gave her a bottle of orange juice, and she observed the seal on the bottle was broken,” said court documents according to WJHG.
WJHG reported that prosecutors said security cameras caught Herring putting a powdered substance from a bag in his pocket into a drink he then gave his wife, according to prosecutors. Herring’s wife later found packaging that contained Cyrux, a Mexican drug that contains misoprostol, in the trash.
