University of Virginia mass shooting: College approves posthumous degrees for 3 slain football players killed by student

A fellow student killed Davis Jr., Devin Chandler, and D’Sean Perry on November 13 aboard a chartered bus returning from a field trip.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia– The University of Virginia awards posthumous degrees to three football players murdered in a mass shooting in November.

Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Programs Rachel Most, who served as dean for all three students at the College of Arts and Sciences, applied for their degrees, according to the university.

Wide receiver Devin Chandler studied American Studies, wide receiver Lavel Davis Jr. studied African American and African Studies, and linebacker D’Sean Perry studied studio art as well as African American and African Studies.

The student-athletes were shot dead on a charter bus on November 13 while returning home from a class trip to Washington, DC.

Mike Hollins and Marlee Morgan are two other students who were injured in the shooting and have since been released from the hospital.

The suspect, identified as student Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., was arrested Nov. 14 after an overnight manhunt, authorities said.

Jones was a running back for the university football team in 2018, although he never attended a game. The motive for the mass shooting is unclear.
