UVA shootingThe University of Virginia lifted a campuswide lockdown Monday, hours after three students were killed and two injured in a shooting rampage on a charter bus that had returned from a field trip, authorities said.

Killed were D’Sean Perry, Lavel Davis Jr., and Devin Chandler, all of whom played football at the Charlottesville school, university President Jim Ryan said.

"This is a sad, shocking and tragic day for our UVA community," Ryan said at a press briefing Monday.

The suspected shooter, Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., was taken into custody just before 11 a.m. Monday in Henrico County, about 75 miles southeast of Charlottesville, Henrico Police said in a statement. Ryan said Jones, 22, is a student at the elite, 22,000-student school.
