shooting at VA Tech


Edit to add - 22 dead (including the gunman) and 21 wounded. The initial press conference said "two separate shootings." One student died at West AJ dorm, the rest were in Norris Hall. The shooter in Norris hall is dead. The press conference is a bit jumbled. The Tech police said that he believes that it was the same shooter as in West AJ, but the President said "we don't know."

Edit to add - Wounded count is now at 30. At Montgomery Regional Hospital 17 patients - 4 patients critical and in surgery. At New River Valley Medical Center 5 patients - 4 stable, 1 critical. At Carilion Roanoke Memorial - 3 patients, all critical. At Lewis Gale Hospital - 5 patients, including one faculty member.

Edit to add - Dead is now at 31.
