WOODBRIDGE, Va. - Police say they've arrested and charged a young man accused of firing a gun inside a classroom at Northern Virginia Community College's Woodbridge campus on Tuesday.
FOX 5 was the only station there when 20-year-old suspect Jason Hamilton left the Prince William County police station in Woodbridge on Tuesday night. He was on his way to jail, charged with attempted murder.
The motive in the case is unknown.
Hamilton lives with his parents and two younger siblings in their house on Baneberry Circle in Manassas, Virginia. Detectives and crime scene technicians were inside the home for hours. Neighbors said they didn't know what to think.
Jennifer Edwards says Jason Hamilton drives a green pickup, and worked for the county last year. She says he lives in his parents' basement.
Prince William County Police say Hamilton brought a rifle to the Woodbridge campus of Northern Virginia Community College, apparently targeting a math teacher. They say he fired his weapon in a classroom but didn't hit anybody, and was quickly captured by police.
The campus shooting reminds many of the massacre at Virginia Tech. Classrooms were locked down, and parts of the community evacuated. This time, there was no killing-- just a chilling crime at a school allegedly committed by a student who is now under arrest.
