A stunning crime! But, maybe the criminal used one of Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” guns! That would at least perhaps be some positive aspect to this tragedy.

Sad. Problem was they didn’t put up enough “Gun Free Zone” signs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGqiULYbt5Y

We now can shoot back in Wisconsin thanks to Governor Walker, and don't you forget it!

Walker signs 'castle doctrine' bill.

Does anyone have a live link to Fox news or anyone else that I can watch via PC?

Thanks!

Thanks ZX12R. I tried CNN earlier but they did not have the live shot up and running.

Turn loose some of the mountain folk up in that part of VA loose to hunt him down. They’ll find him. Not likely a trial will be necessary....

Rumor going that the 2nd victim was the shooter. Another suspect at large.

Or maybe the second victim was the shooter’s accomplice.

(two can keep a secret if one of them is dead)

Posting from VT where the campus is locked down. Listening to the police scanner. The VT alert system says that the suspect’s location is unknown.

Could be but witnesses said they split up. Car drove off and passenger took off on foot.

Are they using dogs to locate the suspect?

If the second victim was the shooter, I wonder if maybe the cop got a shot off and the perp ran for a bit before he went down?

Heard a report on radio news at 5 pm that the killer of the cop was the 2nd victim.

No mention as if he shot himself.

My daughter is a senior at VT. She was not on campus at the time.

My daughter is a Freshman there and said she just happened to decide to go eat otherwise she would have been where it happened when it happened ... she said the lock down was pretty much because folks were freaked out and seeing the shooter everywhere ...

Tense times because I couldn’t reach her for hours ...

The media folks could have at least mentioned the Sex of the second victim and 1/2 of the folks that were worrying might breath just a little easier ...

MSM likes the Hype .. the Worry and Drama

TT

>> Wife, 5 kids.

Events like this are not supposed to occur; yet, evil continues to find a way to steal lives, and torment families.

Prayers for his family. May the officer rest in peace.

“Rumor going that the 2nd victim was the shooter. Another suspect at large.”

Quick news report this morning saying the second body was the shooter.

Yet they spent all day yesterday giving us a description of the guy at large.

Almost as if they were HOPING the second body WASN’T the shooter.

Kind of quiet on the news front regarding this now.

I wonder how much damage control is being undertaken and what lies we’ve been told.

They are just fending off the lawyers at this point. They knew it was a suicide immediately but had to spend hours keeping themselves from being sued.

He wasn’t a student. Ironically, a policeman was killed in I-95 yesterday. Never heard about it.
