I don't understand this story. A gunman kills 1 and wounds several others in a dorm at 7:15 this morning. and then the university goes ahead and holds class, the guy comes back and kills 21 more sitting in their classrooms.
I thought they were in lock-down mode? That's what NPR said on the way to work...
One person was killed and others were wounded at multiple locations inside a dormitory about 7:15 a.m., Flinchum said. Two hours later, another shooting at Norris Hall, the engineering science and mechanics building, resulted in multiple casualties, the university reported. (Watch police, ambulances hustle to the scene )
The first reported shooting occurred at West Ambler Johnston Hall, a co-ed dormitory that houses 895 students. The dormitory, one of the largest residence halls on the 2,600-acre campus, is located near the drill field and stadium.
Amie Steele, editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper, said one of her reporters at the dormitory reported "mass chaos."
The reporter said there were "lots of students running around, going crazy, and the police officers were trying to settle everyone down and keep everything under control," according to Steele.
Kristyn Heiser said she was in class about 9:30 a.m. when she and her classmates saw about six gun-wielding police officers run by a window.
so yeah, according to that CNN story, shooting at 7:15 am, and then people in class at 9:30. that makes no sense to me.
There's a cell video up. You can hear the shots.
awful. that's all i can say.
i will never understand how someone can be so vengeful/angry as to wipe out so many innocent, uninvolved people and then be such a pussy as to kill themselves at the end of the madness. just kill yourself at the start and spare everyone else from your pathetic existence.
i also wanna say "fuck you cnn" for bragging about how many times the cell phone video has been viewed on your website and how you guys are so good at reporting breaking news. fucking self congratulatory over important anchor fucks! report the news, don't sensationalize it.
I've got a friend that goes to VT... i pray he's alright.
report the news, don't sensationalize it.
Ain't nothing like starting the day with news of mass murder.
do they have a football team?...
(note:thats not a joke)

im sick over this.... poor families
Death toll at 32 now with 4 in critical shape. Students were given emails at 7:30 investigating a shooting. Two hours later at 9:30 they were told to lock their doors & take cover. Somebody was asleep at the wheel in the security department. Thats so fucked up. Haven't they got a P.A. system like every high school in the nation?
Deadliest shooting in U.S. history.
Who would've though 2 9mm & a raging lunatic couldv'e done so much damage.
I can't believe nobody swarmed that fuck. He made em all line up & did em execution style. No way I would go out like that, not without a fight.
it's a college, not a highschool.
i've never heard of a college campus having a PA system.
expect some wrongful death lawsuits filed against the school.
