Charlottesville Police Search For Murder Suspect

June 21, 2007

The Charlottesville Police now have a warrant out for a suspect in the murder of a Charlottesville man, killed early Thursday morning.

Police responded to a call early Thursday morning after reports of shots fired on the 800 block of Hardy Drive. After arriving they found 28-year-old William Herndon with multiple gunshot wounds.

Herndon was later pronounced dead at the UVa Medical Center. Police now have a warrant out for the arrest of Jason Scott Marshman.

Police say that Marshman and Herndon were believed to have been acquaintances and that there is no evidence to suggest that the shooting of Herndon was random.

Marshman is wanted for first degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony.

He has prior felony convictions in New York and Virginia and has ties to both areas. His current whereabouts are unknown. Police say that he is armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Marshman is described as a 29-year-old black man, 5'10", weighing 190 pounds, with black hair, and a medium complexion. He has a tattoo on his right chest that says "PRIDE." His last known address is 2023 Michie Drive in Charlottesville.

Any one with any information about the location of Marshman is asked to call 911 or to speak directly with a detective, you can call Bill Sclafani at 434.970.3369 or Jim Mooney at 434.970.3374.
