WVIR reported on the details of this morning’s shooting during their 11pm broadcast. It occurred at 4:30am at the coal tower behind the Lexis-Nexis offices, when a male killed two people, 16-year-old Kate Johnson, a local girl, and 23-year-old Marcus Griffin of Eastman, Georgia. Police were investigating the scene all day today, and Chief Timothy Longo admits that they have little information right now, but are actively pursuing leads. The word on the street is that they were killed in their sleep by a drifter, who had previously announced his intentions to leave town today. These are the first murders in Charlottesville in a just under a year.
