So, there was another shooting on Virginia Tech University campus just over an hour ago. Two are said to have died from it, and you have to wonder if this incident was at all connected to the massacre of 2007. Either way, very jarring news.

https://twitter.com/#!/CollegiateTimes has most of the information

Why isn't this on the news?


Edit: It's on CTV's website, but I don't get why Fox and stuff aren't doing a "breaking news" segment. They'd cut time off sitcoms for football but not this?

This is awful, and I feel terrible for the victims and their families.
According to a NY Times article, a cop was randomly killed by the shooter during a traffic stop. They don't know how it's connected to the other person's death, but these random acts of violence are really disturbing. =/

How does this happen? And twice at the same school? It's just horrible and I feel bad for the people who were shot, as well as their families.

Why is there nothing about this in the news? Does anyone know what the situation is right now?

They had a bit of stuff on the news here in Australia, the first guy who was shot was a police-man in the carpark of the school, and the second man was believed to be the gunman. They were both shot by the same weapon.
Apparently there will be a candlelight vigil soon for the policeman.

There was a mention of it in the smaller news that flashes across the screen, but the newsreaders didn't actually say anything about it.
The lack of actual reporting is weird.

I saw a small news article about this in the newspaper, but it was really small.

I wonder why this is so meagerly reported...
