Shooting At Virginia Tech


Horrible shooting at Virginia Tech.  CNN reporting that at least 22 people have been killed, and at least 28 have been injured.  But there are no official numbers and no official statement as to motive for the shooter. 

For all of our readers who have family and friends at the campus, our hearts go out to all of you.  As news comes in, we'll try to update.  Please feel free to share in the thread below.
