Gunman Found At Virginia Tech Has Yet To Be Found (UPDATE)
Virginia Tech students received a campus alert earlier this morning that there was a gunman near one of the main cafeterias and that the school was going on lockdown. No reports of injuries have come in yet but according to my friend who goes to Tech the lockdown was just ended moments ago so hopefully all is well. UPDATE: Back on lockdown, they haven't found the gunman yet although it is looking like this may all be a false alarm.
Right now it appears this is not a repeat of the 4/16/07 tragedy
The official Virginia Tech Update
"At 9:09 a.m. three juveniles attending a camp at the university reported seeing a white male, 6 feet tall, with light brown hair outside of New Residence Hall East holding what may have been a handgun. They say the weapon was covered by a cloth or covering of some sort. He was walking fast in the direction of the volleyball courts. He was wearing a blue and white striped shirt (stripes were vertical), gray shorts and brown sandals. The subject had no facial hair or glasses.Officers responded immediately to the area but found no one matching the description. Police have encountered no other witnesses reporting this individual or anything suspicious. Law enforcement officers from VTPD, Blacksburg PD, Christiansburg PD, Virginia State Police, and Montgomery County Sheriff's Office are patrolling the campus, continuing to look for the subject."
