Gunman Barricaded in Coal Tower

The suspect in Saturday’s downtown two homicides, 20-year-old Craig Nordenson, has barricaded himself at the very coal tower where he killed 16-year-old Kate Johnson and 23-year-old Marcus Griffin. The coal tower, according to witnesses, is surrounded by police with guns drawn, megaphones out and spotlights. WVIR just now reported on this, and said that police aren’t certain if it’s the suspect or not, but that they believe it is. They also reported that Nordenson has an extensive criminal record, most recently convicted of robbery and grand theft auto, and recently accused of destroying a Charlottesville police van. It’s going to be a late night.
