Richmond shooting victim was heading to track meet at William & Mary

RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) – There were two other victims in the shooting at a Richmond bus station on Thursday that killed a Virginia State Trooper.

According to State Police Officials, the two women were at the scene and were grazed by stray gunfire. The two were transported to VCU Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The victims were traveling when they passed through Richmond, and were not connected with the shooter, James Brown III.

Binghamton University has confirmed that one of the two injured is a member of their women’s track team. According to the student newspaper Pipe Dream, the student was junior Sarah Haley.

A spokesperson from the university told that Sarah, a pole vaulter, was traveling with several members of the track team for a meet at William & Mary. Binghamton’s Athletic Director drove to Virginia to be with the team as soon as he heard about the shooting. The team went on to compete without Sarah, and did not want to talk about the incident.

The school is providing counseling for the team members.

The other victim is a 41-year-old resident of North Carolina, and both are expected to make a full recovery.
