Three people were shot dead and two wounded Sunday night at a parking garage on the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, police said Sunday night. University police identified a student, Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., as the suspect and issued a shelter-in-place advisory that was still in effect Monday morning. Earlier Sunday, police in Moscow, Idaho, found four University of Idaho students dead at a house off campus and said they are investigating the deaths as homicides.

A massive manhunt was underway for Jones in and around Charlottesville involving multiple law enforcement agencies. Police said Jones, 22, is considered armed and dangerous and may be driving a black SUV. There was no suspect in custody in the University of Idaho deaths as of Sunday night, Moscow police told the Idaho Statesman.
