Cummings to discuss security at Old Dominion
Rep. Elijah E. Cummings will travel to Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., Monday to meet with college officials there and discuss security efforts a week after his 20-year-old nephew was shot and killed near the campus.
Cummings, who spoke at his nephew's funeral in Baltimore on Saturday, had earlier described the students living in the neighborhood surrounding the campus as "sitting ducks" because of a recent spike in crime there.
Cummings’ nephew, Christopher Cummings, was killed on June 10. He was a junior at Old Dominion. Christopher Cummings' father, James Cummings, will also speak at the event as will Rep. Robert Scott, a Democrat who represents portions of Norfolk.
