LSU head coach Brian Kelly calls UVA shooting 'senseless violence'

Nov 14, 2022

LSU head coach Brian Kelly was appalled to see what occurred at the University of Virginia on Sunday, where three football players were shot and killed by a former teammate.

D’Sean Perry, Devin Chandler and Lavel Davis Jr., players for the UVA squad, were in a parking garage returning from a field trip with other students when the suspect, Christopher Darnell Jones, a 22-year-old former player, shot them and two others, one of whom was in critical condition at a local Virginia hospital.

"Certainly a very tragic day in Charlottesville," Kelly said at his Monday press conference via OutKick. "And our thoughts and prayers are with the football players at Virginia who were victims of a shooting on their campus. It’s tragic. Our hearts go out to them, the football program, the university. It’s just senseless violence. You know, college campuses should be a place where it’s violent free. What happened yesterday is certainly heartbreaking, and we certainly pray for all those involved."
