Sunday night, the entire country was shocked by the tragic events in Virginia.
On a student bus returning from a play, gunfire erupted.
When the smoke cleared, three students were dead, two more were injured, and a manhunt was underway.
Police were able to identify Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. as the alleged shooter.
He reportedly had previously played for the UVA football team.
This is something of note because the three dead students were all members of the football team.
They are UVA linebacker D'Sean Perry and UVA wide receivers Lavel Davis Jr. and Devin Chandler.
Early reporting has stated that the two other students that were shot, one in critical and one in stable condition, were also members of the football team.
Jones has been charged with three counts of second-degree murder and three counts of using a handgun in commission of a felony.
The White House wasted no time using the incident to push gun control.
While House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated, "Too many families across America are bearing the awful burden of gun violence.
"Earlier this year, President Biden signed the most significant gun safety law in nearly three decades, in addition to taking other historic actions.
"But we must do more. We need to enact an assault weapons ban to get weapons of war off America's streets.
"House Democrats acted, and the Senate should follow."
