Very sad to hear about another tragedy at Virginia Tech. I pray for those students, and for the victims. I graduated in 2004, and Blacksburg was always the safest place I could ever think of. No one locked their doors, and there was no crime to speak of. The town loved the university, and the university loved the town. Now two violent tragedies within 4 years of each other.

BLACKSBURG, Va. – DEVELOPING: Two people, including a police officer, were gunned down on Virginia Tech's campus on Thursday, according to the university.
A Virginia Tech police officer was shot shortly after noon during a traffic stop in the Coliseum parking lot near McComas Hall, a campus gymnasium. The unidentified officer later died.
Witnesses reported to police that the shooter fled on foot toward a parking lot, where a second unidentified victim was found dead.
