CHRISTIANBURG, Va. (AP) - The man accused of shooting two women at a community college inside a Christiansburg mall is set to undergo a psychological evaluation.
Nineteen-year-old Neil MacInnis was scheduled to enter a plea on four felony charges next week stemming from the April shooting. But The Roanoke Times reports that, at a hearing Wednesday, his lawyer requested psychological exam to determine MacInnis' competency both at the time of the offense and now.
Prosecutors didn't object and the case is set for review on Feb. 26.
Police have said the women were in the lobby when a gunman entered a satellite campus of New River Community College.
The suspect was subdued by an off-duty security guard and Christiansburg police officers.
MacInnis is being held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail.
