Bad news at Virginia Tech

As many as 22 people have died in two shootings today at Virginia Tech. The captain of our metroblog site in Washington DC is a Virginia Tech grad student, and he writes that his university email is down.

“We’re all locked in our dorms surfing the Internet trying to figure out what’s going on,” freshman Aimee Kanode told the AP.

According to a student who spoke to NPR, the rumor on campus was that the first shooting incident occured when an angry ex-boyfriend came to see his former girlfriend, an RA, in her dorm. The second shootings took place in a classroom building in another part of campus. News reports are still sketchy, but apparently a gunman was among the dead.

    Yeah we’re all really shocked by the recent shootings at Virginia Tech. We don’t know if the immediate response by the administration was sufficient to contain the threat, and it’s unclear what exactly motivated the killer. Now all we can do is mourn for the victims…
