Seven people have been shot and two were killed at a shooting that took place during a high school graduation ceremony in Richmond, Virginia. The shooting outside the Atria Theater sent students in graduation gowns running for safety, US media reports.
School officials say the shooting took place during a ceremony for the Huguenot High School.
Another graduation scheduled for Tuesday was been postponed and all classes are cancelled on Wednesday.
The victims who killed were an 18-year-old man who was part of the graduating class and his 36-year-old father, police say. Police have not yet released their identities.
A 19-year-old suspect has been taken into custody, according to Interim Richmond Police Chief Rick Edwards. He said that police believe that he knew at least one of the victims.
