CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A basketball game scheduled between Northern Iowa and No. 16 Virginia was canceled Monday night after three football players for the Cavaliers were killed in a shooting on Sunday. The university says Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler and D’Sean Perry were fatally shot Sunday night after they returned from a class trip. Two other students were injured, one critically. Former Virginia football player Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. was suspected of carrying out the attack. It caused the university to issue shelter in place orders to its students for several hours. The order was lifted Monday, shortly before Jones was apprehended. UNI is off until next Monday when they face the University of San Francisco in the NABC Hall of Fame Classic in downtown Kansas City.
