    OMG I got chills when I read this.  I hope that it is no one that any of us knows.   

    School shootings seems so senseless.  There has got to be a prevention.

    The problem with that is, if someone is hellbent on going crazy, and most likely this is their last act either on earth, or as a free person and have an arsenal that no one would dream of stopping on a daily basis, they are pretty much going to do it at any cost.

    You can have metal detectors and whatnot everywhere, but if someone is firing on their way to the metal detector, its kind of not a great deterrrent.

    If all the other students were armed they'd be able to defend themselves. Guns actually save lives.

    The shooter is named William Morva. When I did a myspace search, the following profile came up. Lives in Virginia. What do you guys think- is it him??

    [/quote]Those are 2 separate incidents.  I don't believe they have released the name of the shooter yet and supposedly, there is another shooter still at large.

    [/quote]I agree with all of that.  I don't think that metal detectors are the answer either.

    Officials ordered the campus closed, the second time in less than a year the 26,000-student campus was shut because of a shooting.

    In August 2006, the opening day of classes was canceled and the campus closed when an escaped jail inmate allegedly killed a hospital guard off campus and fled to the Tech area. A sheriff's deputy involved in the manhunt was killed on a trail just off campus.

    The accused gunman, William Morva, faces capital murder charges.

    They are really emphasizing AT LEAST 20 people dead and 28 injured. I hope the number doesn't just keep climbing.

    1 shooter dead.

    Gunfire erupted in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech on Monday, killing at least one person before police arrested a suspect, authorities said. A hospital spokesman said that 17 students had been injured.
