New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is helping University of Virginia football players travel to the funerals of three of their teammates who were killed in a shooting earlier this month.

On Sunday, Nov. 13, former UVA football player Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. allegedly shot and killed 22-year-old D'Sean Perry, a linebacker and defensive end; Devin Chandler, a junior wide receiver on the team; and Lavel Davis Jr., a junior wide receiver.

Jones Jr. shot the players after their bus returned to campus after traveling to D.C. to see a play, authorities said.

Perry and Chandler died at the scene, while Davis died in the hospital.

Video clears detained Canadian air crew but Dominican police ignoring it, CEO says

  Video clears detained Canadian air crew but Dominican police ignoring it, CEO says Security video from a Dominican Republic airport shows someone unrelated to a Canadian flight crew stashing bags of cocaine in the crew’s plane, crucial evidence that’s been ignored by Dominican authorities for months as the Canadians languished in detention, the airline’s CEO said Thursday. The Pivot Airlines employees actually discovered the contraband hidden on the jet and reported it to police, only to then be jailed as potential suspects. They and their passengers have been behind bars or under effective house arrest in the Caribbean nation since April.
