Shooting at Virginia Tech. This is such a terrible shooting incident in Virginia Tech. Seems like there is another Virginia Tech Shooting incident like before in 4 years before. So exactly what is wrong with Virginia tech so pshycopat tends to use it as target anyway?
Anyway, according to the news An intense search is underway at Virginia Tech for the gunman who shot and killed two people — a campus police officer and a student — and authorities have ordered students and staff to stay indoors and secure themselves until the shooter is found.
Officials have not released the identities of the shooting victims. During a traffic stop on campus, the suspect shot and killed a Virginia Tech police officer and then fled on foot through a nearby parking lot, officials said.
“We are looking absolutely everywhere,” university spokesman Mark Owczarski said Thursday afternoon. State police officers, FBI agents and officers with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are searching the campus.
Students at Virginia Tech have been told to stay inside as police search for the man who killed a police officer and another person after a traffic stop. It was the first gunfire on campus since 33 people were killed in a mass shooting in 2007. Today’s deaths came on the same day university officials were in Washington appealing a fine that federal officials imposed over the school’s response in 2007.
