COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO)— The alleged gunman involved in the deadly shooting at the University of Virginia that left three dead, was denied bond at a hearing today.

Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., 22, faces charges including three counts of second-degree murder in the killings of three student athletes, including a former athlete from South Carolina, after a field trip Sunday.

A prosecutor says Jones shot one of the players while he was sleeping.

Authorities say the shooting happened on the bus when it returned to the Charlottesville campus.

Jones was assigned a public defender until a status hearing in December.
