  • Virginia Tech Shooting

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/04/16/vte...ing/index.html

    (CNN) -- The Virginia Tech police chief said at least 20 people were killed in twin shootings on the Blacksburg campus Monday morning.
    "Some victims were shot in a classroom," Chief Wendell Flinchum said, adding that the gunman was dead.

    "Today the university was struck with a tragedy that we consider of monumental proportions," said university President Charles Steger. "The university is shocked and indeed horrified."

    The attacks mark the worst school shooting incident since 1999 when Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 12 students and a teacher before killing themselves at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado.

    A hospital spokeswoman told The Associated Press that 17 Virginia Tech students were being treated for gunshot wounds and other injuries.
    Ugh, I was watching this on TV this morning.

      I just read about this and I cannot believe how awful it is. What the hell is wrong in a world where you can't even send your kids safely off to college anymore? My heart and prayers go out to the victims families, as well as everybody on campus dealing with this crisis.

          I just can't imagine. Brings back so many other things--Oklahoma City, Springfield, Columbine. My heart hurts so much for everyone involved.

                I wonder if the shooter killed himself like Columbine or if the police got him

                    I'm surprised I hadn't heard of this already, as it is worse than columbine.

                            BLACKSBURG, Va. - At least 22 people were killed Monday in a shooting rampage on the Virginia Tech campus, police said. They said the gunman was among the dead.

                            In addition to those killed, officials said at least 28 people were wounded.
                            Virginia Tech Police Chief Wendell Flinchum said the gunman was dead, but that he didn't know how he died.

                            "Today the university was struck with a tragedy that we consider of monumental proportions," said university President Charles Steger. "The university is shocked and indeed horrified."

                            Up until Monday, the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history took place in 1966 at the University of Texas, where Charles Whitman climbed to the 28th-floor observation deck of a clock tower and opened fire. He killed 16 people before he was gunned down by police. In the Columbine High bloodbath near Littleton, Colo., in 1999, two teenagers killed 12 fellow students and a teacher before taking their own lives.

                            Virginia Tech reported shootings at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus, beginning at about 7:15 a.m. local time at West Ambler Johnston, a co-ed residence hall that houses 895 people, and continuing about two hours later at Norris Hall, an engineering building.

                            At least one student was killed in the dorm and others were killed in the classroom, Flinchum said.

                            After the shootings, all entrances to the campus were closed.
                            I'm glad it's not on every channel....I know I would be glued if it was. This is so horrible...
