With a issue like this, it does not matter where the area is because it could happen ANYWHERE! Dont call a area bad until you have been there and saw how "bad" it was. This shouldnt be a time where we separate on a issue but a time to come together and see the bigger picture that you arent every promised to live to see another day. So love, live, and laugh while you still have the breath to do so...

I am in agreement with Jane as some areas are more likely and highly publicized when unfortunate happengings such as the recent shooting occur. Now I may be in defense because I am recent graduate of the institution. However, I still am in communication with a number of individuals that attend the school and live in the area that are quite comfortable with their environment and community. My days in the area were not long ago and it was second nature and with the upmost comfortable feeling to travel worry-free throughout the particular sectors of that Chesterfield County community. It is a time to rise safety and appreciativeness for life all over; not in just one particular community.

Dude, it's a college campus what do you mean it's bad and getting worse. It's a fine area just these type things can happen anywhere. I bet you don't talk that pleasant piss when an fatal incident happens on or near the campus of VCU or VT..smh

I think police needs to check into some of these fraternities at VSU. Don't know how he was killed, but if he was beat up then by all means they should look into the FRATS. This is just my opinion!!!!!!!!!

The victim isn't from the virgin islands he is actually from a small string of islands just west of barbados called Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. I went to high school with the guy. I can't believe this has happened to him...he was always a happy go lucky guy..R.I.P. my friend

I see some people never learned not to use Wikipedia for real conversations..>>Life Term<<..Please refrain from the negative remarks someone has passed away who was really trying to make it in life. Instead of complaining and judging what he really didn't understand and know nothing about, he was instead getting a Great education from a Great institution. So please show some respect.

If he is from the UNITED STATES, Virgin Islands, it is not "another country, and dialing long distance to the Virgin Islands is no different than having to dial outside of the calling area of Chesterfield County, VA. Know your history and due your research before reporting. Nevertheless, on behalf of the UNITED STATES, Virgin Islands' people our prayers are with the victim's family.

Was he from the Virgin Islands or from St. Vincent and the Grenadines? There are two different stories printed.

This is very alarming and sad. We are from the Virgin Islands and just waiting to verify whom it is, is just nerve racking and very overwhelming for us here in Virginia. Our prayers go out to his family and friends. God bless

Tell them again, why they dont teach that in the schools here is confusing to me. We the Virgin Islands is nothing they know about. Even in the news, they think of us as Foreigners. I sometimes think i rather be classified as that, than be in the same hole with the ignorance...Getting the correct news and information before printing it is not something they obviously learn in media school,huh?

you know to be honest all you people arguing about where he is from. if you know who he is does it matter.. he is gone, its a bigger picture then you people arguing about being mistakingly classified as virgin islander or ect. i wouldnt care if the news made a mistake and said he was from damn iraq, none of that can bring my friend back
