Fortunately, the guy who shot the cop at VT instantly realized that he had made his life forfeit and acted appropriately after thinking hard for a quarter mile.

Thanks to my job I was able to listen to the police scanners for this incident; those guys really had their hands full. The description handed out of "guy wearing sweatpants and sweatshirt" meant that pretty much everybody on earth was getting reported as a suspect. The cops were pulling in everyone in sight matching that description. My favorite: "report of suspect matching description, male with limp and maroon VT hoody. Last seen entering Bed Bath and Beyond."

Now...I'm no CSI super-genius detective; but I'm pretty doubtful that a guy who just murdered a police officer very publicly in just about the worst place possible in the Commonwealth of Virginia would decide that replenishing his fancy soap supply would be of paramount importance.
