Virginia Tech Shootings

At least 22 people dead.


Update: At least 30 people dead, according to the AP. The gunman apparently killed himself.

The Collegiate Times is putting up updates.

The Roanoke Times is also doing updates.

Planet Blacksburg has a local perspective.


  1. That’s a lot more than how many Charles Whitman killed in 1966.

    I’ve only visited Virginia Tech’s campus once (a few years ago to hear James Earl Jones talk). You wouldn’t think something like that would happen in a nice place like that.

  2. Yeah, it tends to be a really peaceful place. It always felt safe walking around campus at night.
