Dozens Dead in Virginia Tech Massacre; Gunman Killed
A dorm and classroom were the target of a gunman who killed dozens and injured dozens more on the Virginia Tech campus today in the nation's deadliest campus shooting in history.
ABC is now reporting 29 confirmed dead...and the death toll may rise.
The Associate Press reports, "The university reported shootings at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus, beginning at about 7:15 a.m. 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. Some but not all the dead were students. One student was killed in a dorm and the others were killed in the classroom, Virginia Tech Police Chief W.R. Flinchum."
The gunman was reported killed but it was not clear if he had committed suicide or was shot by police.
Our thoughts go out to the friends and families of the victims of this senseless bloodbath.
