Breaking news: 33 dead after Virginia Tech shooting
*Update, 3:30 pm: the current count is 33 dead, including the gunman.*
I’m currently between meetings (on campus, no less), and can’t currently allow myself the luxury of reading this whole story, let alone reacting to it. But it hits close to home, so I wanted to link to it immediately:
BLACKSBURG, Va. – A gunman opened fire in a Virginia Tech dorm and then, two hours later, in a classroom across campus Monday, killing at least 30 people in the deadliest shooting rampage in U.S. history, government officials told The Associated Press. The gunman was killed, bringing the death toll to 31.
Feel free to treat this as a more-or-less open thread…
