RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The family of the man authorities say shot and killed a Virginia Tech police officer is offering condolences and prayers to the slain officer's family.

In an unsigned statement faxed Sunday to The Associated Press, the family of 22-year-old Ross Truett Ashley also requested that their privacy be respected. They said there would be no additional statements.

The Spotsylvania County family had not made a public statement since the deadly shooting Thursday.

Investigators say Ashley walked up to police officer Deriek Crouse on Virginia Tech's Blacksburg campus and fatally shot him. Ashley was found a short time later, dead of self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Virginia State Police investigators are attempting to determine a motive for what appears to be an unprovoked attack.
