A suspected gunman has been arrested and in custody, after two campus officers were fatally shot at a private liberal arts college in Virginia, the United States on Tuesday.

According to Bridgewater College, the officers were close friends known to many.

"They were loved by students, faculty and staff. I hurt with their families and loved ones, as I know we all do. This is a sad and dark day for Bridgewater College.”

Virginia State Police spokeswoman, Corrine Geller identified the alleged shooter as Alexander Wyatt Campbell.

Campbell is accused of two counts of capital murder, first-degree murder and using a firearm to commit a felony.

The spokeswoman said; “The officers were shot after responding to a report of a suspicious person at the Memorial Hall.”

“And after a brief interaction with Jefferson and Painter, Campbell allegedly opened fire, fatally striking them.”

The campus of roughly 1,800 students was placed on lockdown as nine law enforcement agencies responded to the shooting.
