HARRISONBURG, Va. — Hundreds are expected to attend a memorial service for two officers who were fatally shot last week when they responded to reports of a suspicious man on the campus of a private college in Virginia.
Bridgewater College campus police officer John Painter and campus safety officer J.J. Jefferson were killed on Feb. 1 when a gunman opened fire on them after a brief interaction.
Alexander Wyatt Campbell, a 27-year-old former student at the college, has been charged with murder.
A spokesperson for Gov. Glenn Youngkin said he plans to attend the service.
It is being held at the Atlantic Union Bank Center on the James Madison University campus in Harrisonburg.
