There was a shooting off the downtown mall early Sunday morning, as reported by Charlottesville’s The Daily Progress. The shooting killed one and left two hospitalized at the UVA hospital. Reports indicate that the shooting transpired close to the start of the Downtown Mall, not far from the intersection of Main Street and Route 631.
At the time, no arrests have been made, though Charlottesville police hypothesize that the shooter and the victims were likely acquaintances. This is one of several shootings in the past two months, and also not the only one with unidentified offenders.
In September alone, there were 6 reports of shots fired to the Charlottesville police, and 5 more in the first half of October alone. This most recent incident is the second of those 11 instances in which no offender has been identified.
