CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Authorities say three people have been killed and two others were wounded in a shooting at the University of Virginia and a student is being sought as a suspect.

President Jim Ryan says in a letter to the university community posted on social media that the shooting at around 10:30 p.m. Sunday resulted in three fatalities.

Emergency alert was sounded

The university’s emergency management issued an alert Sunday night notifying the campus community of an “active attacker firearm” and warning students to shelter in place following a report of shots fired on the northern outskirts of campus.
