Gov. Ralph Northam said it was time to move on from the blackface yearbook photo scandal with the conclusion of the Eastern Virginia Medical School's investigation.

"What has happened in the Commonwealth of Virginia, I regret that, I have addressed that. But today we are talking about gun violence and how to save lives in Virginia," Northam told a reporter on Tuesday.

Northam said his office conducted their own investigation and turned over what they found to Eastern Virginia Medical School.

The Eastern Virginia Medical School said their investigation into who was in the photo, which had one student in blackface and another in Ku Klux Klan robes on Northam's personal yearbook page, was inconclusive.
