Christopher Buckner

The U.S. Marshals' fugitive task force on Wednesday apprehended a 31-year-old Manassas Park man wanted for murder in a July 30 shooting that killed one man and left a second wounded in Manassas.

Christopher Buckner was arrested in New Kensington, Pennsylvania without incident, Manassas police said. He is currently awaiting extradition to Virginia and a court date is pending. 

The shooting occurred in the 8600 block of Bruton Parish Court around 10:12 p.m. July 30. Police arrived to find two men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Tommy Campbell, 49, of Manassas died as a result of his injuries. The second man was treated for injuries that were serious, but not life-threatening.

Buckner is charged with murder, aggravated malicious wounding, and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, Manassas police said.

Police saying "this was an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public." is code for this was a drug deal gone bad. But, saying there is no threat to the public is a little presumptious I think.There is a killer (or killers) out there with guns willing and able to use them illegally.


Biden has declared that he will have 10% low income housing in every neighborhood in America. So we should get use to having murders and shootings next door to us very soon.


Ahhh the liberalizarion of PWC. Good job Dems!



Ahhh the ignorance of "conservatism". Good job GOP.


The culture of violence continues thanks to liberal democrats. Biden will be a disaster for America. Liberals support violence and anarchy as evidenced by Portland, Seattle and now even Richmond.


Ahhh, the culture of ignorant Bradboy continuing to make his greatest hits racist remarks continues....


Whoa, timt whips out the DEM playbook and starts calling people racist when they don’t agree with his views And don’t write anything racist.


In case you haven’t noticed, this is about the thousandth time that Bradboy has made the same stupid comment, always about a minority. The next time he makes this asinine comment about a white person commuting a crime will also be the first time. Figure it out Sherlock.


Don't waste your breath timt. Their type is too blinded by their hatred for minorities to see the obvious.


Um, sorry Sherlock. I looked back at timt’s posts and he mentions BLM and illegal immigrants but nothing racist. Who doesn’t want people to come into our country legally? Why is saying BLM incites violence racist? Protesting is a right protected by our Constitution. Destroying businesses and setting buildings on fire is not. I honestly could care less what color you are but act like a thug, you get treated like a thug. And that goes for ALL ethnic groups.


I guarantee that you are not better off now than you were 4 years ago

Not in my Hometown.

Timt: You said this is about the thousandth time brad made a comment about minorities. You should be thinking Wow, this is the thousandth time they have got in trouble. Racist or not you cannot overlook who is committing the crimes. Go Brad!




Please Godislove, use some common sense. What is really hateful and racist is killing 200,000 unborn black babies each year, fulfilling the dreams of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. And since you apparently believe in God, and believe he is love, let me remind you of the harsh Biblical warnings to people like you that let harm come to children. Don't stick your head in the sand and pretend that is not happening, yet get upset at others because they use words you misinterpret as hateful and racist.


Check up on your scripture:

Ten biblical episodes and prophecies provide an unequivocal expression of God's attitude toward human life, especially the ontological status of "unborn children" and their pregnant mothers-to-be. Brief summaries:

• A pregnant woman who is injured and aborts the fetus warrants financial compensation only (to her husband), suggesting that the fetus is property, not a person (Exodus 21:22-25).

• The gruesome priestly purity test to which a wife accused of adultery must submit will cause her to abort the fetus if she is guilty, indicating that the fetus does not possess a right to life (Numbers 5:11-31).

• God enumerated his punishments for disobedience, including "cursed shall be the fruit of your womb" and "you will eat the fruit of your womb," directly contradicting sanctity-of-life claims (Deuteronomy 28:18,53).

• Elisha's prophecy for soon-to-be King Hazael said he would attack the Israelites, burn their cities, crush the heads of their babies and rip open their pregnant women (2 Kings 8:12).

• King Menahem of Israel destroyed Tiphsah (also called Tappuah) and the surrounding towns, killing all residents and ripping open pregnant women with the sword (2 Kings 15:16).

• Isaiah prophesied doom for Babylon, including the murder of unborn children: "They will have no pity on the fruit of the womb" (Isaiah 13:18).

• For worshiping idols, God declared that not one of his people would live, not a man, woman or child (not even babies in arms), again confuting assertions about the sanctity of life (Jeremiah 44:7-8).

• God will punish the Israelites by destroying their unborn children, who will die at birth, or perish in the womb, or never even be conceived (Hosea 9:10-16).

• For rebelling against God, Samaria's people will be killed, their babies will be dashed to death against the ground, and their pregnant women will be ripped open with a sword (Hosea 13:16).

• Jesus did not express any special concern for unborn children during the anticipated end times: "Woe to pregnant women and those who are nursing" (Matthew 24:19).
