The shooting happened just after

Ivanhoe Road in Fries.

The Sheriff says 68-year old
Robert Bonds shot 77-year old Virginia
Haynes three times, once in the chest
and twice in the back.

A neighbor, who apparently saw
it all happen, says Bonds then shot
himself in the head.

The sheriff says Bonds had been
drinking.

An autopsy will determine

That's the conclusion of a new study

The study found that popular teens
are three times more likely to drink,
smoke pot, shoplift and vandalize
property.

The study was based on surveys of
500 Charlottesville-area middle school

One U-V-A professor says the study
contradicts the conventional view that
popular kids don't do bad things.

David Waters says it shows that we
