This is a breaking event and I’d caution that details now are very sketchy at best,but there was an incident reported where a white male apparently shot a police officer near the campus of Virgina Tech and then fled the scene. The campus went on immediate lock-down as a precaution. There is no evidence to date that the shooter is on campus.

Update: The officer has died, and a second person seems to have been killed as well. Keep their families in your prayers.
