    Default Gunman kills 21 on Va Tech Campus

    BLACKSBURG, Va. Apr 16, 2007 (AP)

    A gunman opened fire in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech on Monday, killing 21 people and wounding another 21 before he was killed, police said.

    "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 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.

    One student was killed in a dorm and the others were killed in the classroom, Virginia Tech Police Chief W.R. Flinchum.

    After the shootings, all entrances to the campus were closed and classes canceled through Tuesday.

    "There's just a lot of commotion. It's hard to tell exactly what's going on," said Jason Anthony Smith, 19, who lives in the dorm where shooting took place.

    Aimee Kanode, a freshman from Martinsville, said the shooting happened on the 4th floor of West Ambler Johnston dormitory, one floor above her room. Kanode's resident assistant knocked on her door about 8 a.m. to notify students to stay put.

    "They had us under lockdown," Kanode said. "They temporarily lifted the lockdown, the gunman shot again."

    "We're all locked in our dorms surfing the Internet trying to figure out what's going on," Kanode said.

    Madison Van Duyne, a student who was interviewed by telephone on CNN, said, "We are all in lockdown. Most of the students are sitting on the floors away from the windows just trying to be as safe as possible."

    It was second time in less than a year that the campus was closed because of a shooting.

    In August 2006, the opening day of classes was canceled and the campus closed when an escaped jail inmate allegedly killed a hospital guard off campus and fled to the Tech area. A sheriff's deputy involved in the manhunt was killed on a trail just off campus.

    Police said there had been bomb threats on campus over the past two weeks by authorities but said they have not determined a link to the shootings.

    So tragic and senseless. Some days I'm ashamed and afraid to be human.

    This is serious.

    I can't even turn on the TV right now for the lack of dignity that the media must be achieving, tripping all over themselves.


    Depressing knowledge eh?
