A high school graduate and his father were killed.
Two people were killed and several injured in a post-high school shooting in Richmond, Virginia, police said.
A 19-year-old suspect has been taken into custody in connection with a shooting at a park on Tuesday after Huguenot High School’s graduation ceremony ended at a nearby theater.
Richmond Police Chief Rick Edwards said officials believed the suspect knew at least one of the shooting victims.
Among those killed in the shooting were Huguenot High School graduate Sean Jackson, 18, and his father, Renzo Smith, 36.
Authorities said five people, four adults and a 14-year-old boy, survived the shooting. One victim, 31, was hospitalized in a life-threatening condition, while the other four had non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.
Several other people suffered various injuries in connection with the shooting. Police said Jackson’s 9-year-old sister was hit by a car and was hospitalized although her life was not in danger.
Two people were treated for falls at the scene, and nine were treated for anxiety and minor injuries, police said.
Officials said the shooting occurred around 5:13 p.m. in Monroe Park, near Virginia Commonwealth University. The scene was near the Altria Theater, where several Richmond public school graduations were scheduled for Tuesday.
Students in graduation gowns were also seen running away.
Richmond Mayor Lever Stoney called the shooting “a selfish and senseless act.”
“Kids should be able to attend graduation, walk to graduation and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment with friends and family,” Stoney told reporters.
The school district announced Tuesday night’s scheduled Thomas Jefferson High School graduation has been canceled and all public schools in Richmond are closed Wednesday.
