Albemarle County Police are investigating a homicide at an apartment in the 2200 block of
Commonwealth Drive. At approximately 11:20PM on 9/30/08 Albemarle County Police
responded to the 2200 block of Commonwealth Drive for a report of shots fired in an
apartment. Witnesses at the scene reported that a white male subject came to the apartment
where an altercation ensued and shots were fired.

The suspect in the fatal shooting reportedly fled on foot from the area. He is described as a
white male, approximately 6 feet tall, mid 20’s in age with shoulder length blonde hair. He may
have a prominent mole or other marking on his face. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and
a white “hoodie” type shirt.

One male victim was fatally shot. Two other male victims appear to have non life threatening
injuries. It is unknown if the injuries were the result of gunfire. They were transported to UVA
hospital for treatment. The names of the victims are being withheld pending notification of
family members.

The motive for the incident is still under investigation. No further information is available at
this time as this is an ongoing investigation.
