A Joint Statement from the County of Albemarle and City of Charlottesville


ALBEMARLE COUNTY, VA - On November 13, 2022, a shooting incident with multiple fatalities occurred at the University of Virginia in the vicinity of Culbreth Road.  This incident is heartbreaking and our thoughts are with the victims’ families, the University community, and our broader community.
