Tragic news coming out of Virginia Tech.

From the AP:

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) – A gunman opened fire in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech on Monday, killing 21 people and wounding another 21 before he was killed, police said.

On the Web site, Tech reported the shootings at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus at West Ambler Johnston, a co-ed residence hall that houses 895 people, and said there were “multiple victims” at Norris Hall, an engineering building.

All entrances to the campus were closed and classes canceled through Tuesday.

Awful. Just awful.

UPDATE:
The statement of Virginia Tech’s President can be found here, and ABC News has eyewitnesses.

And here’s some video…
