Monumental Tragedy

By USA TODAY staff

BLACKSBURG, Va. — At least 31 people are dead after a gunman went on a two-hour rampage Monday at a dormitory and classroom building at Virginia Tech University, government officials told the Associated Press. If the death toll is confirmed, it will be the worst shooting spree in U.S. history.

Some of the victims were students, most of them killed in a classroom in an engineering building. The suspected gunman is among the dead, campus police said, although it is not yet clear if he was shot by police or killed himself.

CNN is now reporting 33 dead, including the gunman.

Words cannot express the sympathy I feel towards the families of the deceased and wounded.
