Virginia Tech Death Toll Reaches 33

At least 33 people, including a gunman, were killed Monday during shootings in a dorm and a building housing classrooms at Virginia Tech, university officials said. The death toll makes the incident the deadliest school attack in U.S. history. Two people were killed at a dormitory about 7:15 a.m., while another 30 people were killed two hours later at Norris Hall, the engineering science and mechanics building, university officials said.

This is absolutely monstrous; no where is safe anymore. And here I was, thinking that this was bad. That scum of a creature even took his own life. However, "investigators are not ruling out a second shooter." I hope justice is served to the victims of the incident. Some stupid kid even created a Facebook group with the name "A shooting like this wouldnt happen at UVA!" How fucking insensitive! The situation is absolute chaos over there right now, two students jumped out of windows; none of them died, thank God, but they're still in pretty bad shape. They even had a bomb threat three days earlier. According to the school website, "Virginia Tech has canceled all classes. Those on campus are asked to remain where they are, lock their doors and stay away from windows. Persons off campus are asked not to come to campus."

...This is really awful.
