One week after a violent murder in Charlottesville the suspect remains on the loose.

It’s now been seven days police have been searching for a suspected killer. They say their investigation has taken them out of state but as of yet has not turned up in an arrest.

“We'll continue to work as aggressively as we can to locate him and bring him to justice,” said Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo.

The man police are looking for is 29-year-old Jason Scott Marshman of Charlottesville. He is wanted for first-degree murder and a firearms charge.

Police believe Marshman was the gunman who killed 28-year-old William Herndon on Hardy Drive last Thursday. The victim was shot multiple times.

Investigators are still not clear on what led to the shooting but do say the two men knew each other. At this time detectives believe Marshman has fled the area but they are not ruling anything out.

“It is safe to draw the conclusion he has left the area but nonetheless there is a possibility he could be here or coming here from time to time. So we need to keep our sense of urgency alive and well and should someone see him they think quickly,” said Longo.

Police say do not approach him. Marshman is considered armed and dangerous. If you spot him or have information call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 434-977-4000.
