    Just saw this on the news. I am really, really happy my best friend isn't living down there anymore. The first thing that came to mind when I saw this news was "William Morva."

    At least 20 dead has been confirmed by police. There was apparently one gunman who has been killed.

    And I guess there was a bomb threat there too.

    Well, that headline certainly went from 20 wounded and suspect in custody to 20 killed and suspect believed killed awfully fast.

    Currently:

    21 dead and 21 (more) wounded in two shootings. I'm not sure if the dead shooter is included in the numbers.

    *edit* According to police, at least 22 now dead.

    That school has got to be really stupid. There was a 2 hour gap between shootings in the dorm and the shootings in the classrooms. Why did they even have classes?


    Did anyone else find it really strange that the kids in the media class were writing stories and posting them online while they were trying to hide from a crazed gunman? Apparently there are some people who can't get off the internet for anything.

    VA Tech just had a crazed convict go nuts with a gun last year. Something about that school....

    I think "stupid" and "crazed" are the wrong words to use when talking about those who DIDN'T grab weapons and come in and kill 22 people (AP reports 22 dead). Watch your words you pick more closely, this is quite a huge tragedy and we will be hearing about it for months if not years to come now.

    I can't say as I fully understand why things like this happen.

    It is really sad and I feel for anyone involved.

    Was the gunman a student?

    Guess its a good thing a friend was skipping this current semester there.

    From what I just heard on TV the gunman was asking for his girlfriend, and anyone that said no was shot. They can't say that is the only reason yet, but one of them I guess.

    Is there a name list of who's dead or is it just numbers right now? I sure as hell hope some of the WUVT regulars are safe and OK.

    I'm not aware of a list of victims. But CNN still reflects 22 dead (including the gunman) and not the 29 mentioned above.
