    Virginia Tech has posted on its website that the campus is on lockdown after reports of shots fired.

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    • NEW: 2 killed, 1 a police officer
    • NEW: The incident began with a routine traffic stop, a school spokesman says
    • A witness says he saw a large group of officers attempting resuscitation on someone
    • The school tells everyone to seek shelter or stay inside
    (CNN)-- Virginia Tech was on lockdown after two people were killed, the school said Thursday, adding that a suspect remained at large.
    One of the dead is a police officer, the school said.
    Shortly after noon, a Virginia Tech police officer stopped a vehicle for a routine traffic stop in the Coliseum parking lot near McComas Hall, and the officer was shot and killed, school spokesman Mark Owczarski said. There were witnesses, he said.
    The shooter fled on foot toward a parking lot called the cage. At that lot, a second person was found dead, Owczarski said.
    Several law enforcement agencies have responded, including the FBI.
    Virginia State Police have been requested to take the lead in the investigation, Owczarski said.
    The status of the shooter is unknown, he said, calling on the campus community to remain on lockdown. On its website, the school said the suspect remained at large.
    "Suspect described as white male, gray sweat pants, gray hat w/neon green brim, maroon hoodie and backpack. On foot towards McComas," the school said in posts on its website and Twitter feed.
    "There is an active campus alert in Blacksburg," the website says. "Everyone should seek shelter or stay where you are. Blacksburg Transit service is suspended until the alert is lifted."
    Brian Walls, a school employee, told CNN he heard 10 to 15 different sirens go by, and when he looked outside he saw a large group of officers. "I ended up seeing an individual on the ground," he said, and rescue workers appeared to be attempting resuscitation.
    "Then the campus alarm alerts went off," and he got back inside, he said.
    The Cassell Coliseum at Virginia Tech houses athletic facilities. McComas Hall houses exercise facilities.
    In 2007, 33 people were killed when student Seung-Hui Cho went on a shooting rampage at the campus. That took place at West Ambler Johnston Hall, across the street from the Coliseum lot.
    Classes for the semester ended Wednesday. Students were preparing Thursday for final exams.

    There were 4 threads in moderation about this. Only two of them were written by people who had read the sticky, and thus formatted correctly to be on the front page. I merged them together and deleted the other 2. A link and a wall of text does not a news post make. You need at least one image, one quote and one sauce link. Look at the posts above this one, they are perfect examples of how to make a thread for the front page that will pass moderation. I feel like I write this shit every fucking day, it's not that difficult. It even says what to do on the create thread page for Christ's sake.

    ANYWAYS. The isn't really a school shooting, it's more like a shooting that just happened to be at a school. The only reason anyone cares is because it's at V-Tech.

    it was all a conspiracy to enforce tighter gun laws in australia.

    well, yes, there was some.... interesting facts like;
    • IQ of 66, putting him at an impressively low 1.17th percentile. While still able to function independently in society, he received the nickname Stupid Marty.
    • Made lewd comments to almost any female. Loved pornography and was obsessed with bestiality. Frequently hired prostitutes. Creepy. Enjoyed violent films, his favorite Child's Play II.
    • Inherited approximately $500,000 after the suicide of his father and the death of Helen Harvey, killed in an automobile accident (in which Martin was passenger.)
    • Bryant had no significant firearms experience, but he owned 200 teddy bears.
    • The Port Arthur Massacre sparked gun reform in Australia, though none was really needed. Tasmania in particular, where this massacre occurred, sported a very low murder rate, in which guns involved only a fraction.
    • A New South Wales police report indicates that 29 shots were fired at the Broad Arrow, 19 ending as fatal head shots, 1 other fatal shot, and 12 wounded. In about 90 seconds. A very interesting statistic.
    • Bryant's AR-15 was found with an exploded cartridge in the chamber, exploded with a force not normally seen for a bullet of this calibre. If this had occurred while the weapon was being held, severe injury would have resulted to the operator -- amputation, burns, or firearms discharge residue. At time of arrest, Bryant was burned from the fire at Seascape Cottage, but his hands were uninjured.
    • Has made four suicide attempts while in prison.
    • Current residence Risdon Prison.
    • Lyndon LaRouche publication EIR asserts that Bryant was a "patsy" brainwashed by the Tavistock Institute.

    i read somewhere some of the shooting on the vehicles were done by a professional marksman....
    very specific ways in which the car were damaged.

    this guy doesn't even sound like he could tie his own shoes....

    just some really weird stuff out there about this case.

    If one person had a gun on them that day they could have stopped him.

    Australia isn't America, it got Semi Auto's banned, that was all.
    they react this way to everything, if something goes wrong BAN IT! that will solve everything!
    you can own a gun in Australia, but basically the only time it may be loaded and functional is inside a firing range, outside it must be completely dismantled, and in a protective secure case, you are not allowed to keep a loaded gun at home, even if it's under lock and key.
    only other place is on someone's property with their permission you can wield a rifle like a pump action rifle or a shotgun, no handguns.
    though it has not stopped occasional shootings from happening, there is still a good supply of weapons for crims that kept their guns rather than trade them for cash before the prohibition laws, and plenty of drug ops have been crashed by police who found a cache of all kinds of weapons and ammunition which could be used for a really long shoot out with heavy casualties.

    my point is, i think they should just leave legal gun owners alone, let them have their space to breathe and use guns the way Australians use them, for shooting tinny cans on a tree branch in the outback.
    we would be content freedom to use just underpowered handguns that shoot a round that melts and only makes one hole in a coke can but no exit hole, and pea-shooter rifles that shoot small balls smaller than pea's
    they are unsuitable for criminals as they don't have allot of stopping power, and when confronted with armed police or security guards wearing the vests, they got no chance, police guns are shoot to kill not shooting targets, though it probably won't come to that, they will probably just hit you with 5 tazers at once.
