On Sunday, three football players were shot at the School’s main campus in Charlottesville. This incident occurred when the bus returned from a school trip, and the players got down to the campus. The police came to the spot as the investigations began to find out the culprit.
The police have gotten custody of a student of the University of Virginia who happened to be an ex-player of the team.
The suspect is Christopher, and he has already faced three charges. He has committed second-degree Murder and has also been to jail after committing a felony on a police officer.
After the incident, along down was imposed inside the campus. But after the arrest of this culprit, the lockdown was lifted.
Details Of The Incident
According to the sources, the shooting took place at around 11 a.m. As per the footage of the CCTV cameras, Christopher came into his vehicle to shoot the three players and immediately drove himself out of place.
The interrogations have begun, and the team is collecting the maximum amount of evidence resulting in a successful prosecution of Christopher. But until now, the actual aim due to which this incident was committed has not been discovered.
It is a shocking incident for the entire School, which failed to provide sufficient protection to the students within its premises.
A committee has also been formed to study the existing safety measures in the School so that an attempt could be made to reduce the possibility of this kind of incident in the future.
The pistol with which the three students were shot has also been taken into custody. Detailed steps are being taken to solve the case as soon as possible.
What Is The Condition Of The Children Who Have Been Shot?
Out of the three children, two are doing well and one is in critical condition for the time being. One of the children was shot in the shoulder, and the other two were shot in the back.
It is very uncertain whether these three players will be in the position to play football again in their lives. The injury will have a devastating impact on their careers.
But for the time being, what matters is their recovery and nothing else. It is hoped that their families get enough strength to bear the loss so that they can be in a better position to get the best possible remedy.
The school authorities also decided to compensate the cost of the treatment to be family so that the financial burden on them is reduced to the minimum possible extent.
But all of these measures would not be able to get these players back to the ground where they belong. Their recovery will take time. It is not specific for the time being that the best results will be obtained with the help of the treatment being delivered because one of the patients is still unconscious and is not responding to the treatment in the way he is expected to respond.
It can be concluded that this is one of the most critical factors that is definitely able to teach the school authorities to be very careful with respect to the happenings around them so that such kind of incidence could be prevented to the maximum possible capacity. They try to play with the safety of the students, which is not at all acceptable at any cost.
