CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NewsNation) — A manhunt is underway for a suspect who allegedly shot and killed three people and wounded two others at the University of Virginia late Sunday evening, according to the university’s president.

The shooting at around 10:30 p.m. Sunday “resulted in three fatalities; two additional victims were injured and are receiving medical care,” President Jim Ryan said in a letter to the university community posted on social media.

The suspect Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., a student at the university, was last seen wearing blue jeans, a burgundy jacket and red shoes. The UVA Police Department said he may be driving a black SUV with the license plate number TXZ3580.

The school’s website had an urgent alert message, saying that multiple police agencies are actively looking for the suspect who is armed and dangerous. Authorities have also warned the public to shelter in place.

The university’s emergency management issued an alert early Monday morning notifying the campus community of an “active attacker firearm.” The message warned students to shelter in place following a report of shots fired on Culbreth Road on the campus.

Ryan’s letter confirmed the suspect was still at large.

“This is a message any leader hopes never to have to send, and I am devastated that this violence has visited the University of Virginia,” Ryan wrote. “This is a traumatic incident for everyone in our community and we have canceled classes for today (Monday, Nov. 14.)”

For family and friends with questions about the incident, UVA has established an Emergency Hotline at 877-685-4836.
