Marshman called ‘armed and dangerous’

Charlottesville Police are looking for a 29-year-old named Jason Scott Marshman, who is the suspect in the shooting death this morning of his acquaintance William Miller Herndon, 28.

Police say the alleged shooter faces murder and weapons charges and should be considered "armed and dangerous." Marshman has prior felony convictions in Virginia and New York and has ties to both locations, say police, who describe him as an African American who stands about 5'10" with a tattoo on his chest reading "Pride."

The killing occurred in the 800 block of Hardy Drive, aka the Westhaven Public Housing Complex. Anyone who sees Marshman– who police say uses the alias "Anthony Scott" and the nickname "J"– is urged call 911.
