The first shooting occurred in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday, November 12. People were gathered in the parking lot of Jones High School during a playoff game against the school and Wekiva High when shots rang out.

The second shooting took place on Sunday night at the University of Virginia (UVA) after a bus carrying students returned to the Charlottesville campus from a class trip. Police are accusing ex-football player Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., 22, of opening fire on and near the vehicle.
Three UVA football players — Lavel Davis Jr., D’Sean Perry, and Devin Chandler — died in the shooting. Two others, including football player Michael Hollins Jr., suffered injuries. The suspect was arrested on Monday morning after an intense manhunt.
Reports indicate the alleged shooter had been on the university’s radar at the time of the shooting. The motive is not clear.
