At a vigil Thursday night, Vassell's mother, Lorna, said her son "came from a good home" and that he was not homeless. Other speakers said that "911 callers, blood is on your hands as well as the NYPD", according to eyewitness accounts.

The bus first ran off the right side of the road, and the driver then overcorrected to the left, causing the bus to turn over in the median, the state patrol said.

Operated by Jet Executive Limousine of metro Atlanta, the charter bus "was set up like a party limousine in the back", Wright said.

The third Richmond-area passenger, several sources said, works for Cherry Bekaert, the Richmond-based accounting firm whose Atlanta office chartered the bus for employees and clients.

A lot of individuals were shot to hospitals however, that the patrol says that the injuries were not lifethreatening.

All seven people being treated at AUMC are adults. Eastbound lanes of I-20 are still closed, but all westbound lanes of traffic are now moving. This is near the Appling-Harlem and Grovetown exits and just outside of Augusta.
