    BLACKSBURG, Va. - At least 22 people were killed Monday in a shooting rampage on the Virginia Tech campus, police said. They said the gunman was among the dead.

    In addition to those killed, officials said at least 28 people were wounded.

    Virginia Tech Police Chief Wendell Flinchum said the gunman was dead, but that he didn't know how he died.

    "Today the university was struck with a tragedy that we consider of monumental proportions," said university President Charles Steger.

    The university reported shootings at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus, beginning at about 7:15 a.m. local time at West Ambler Johnston, a co-ed residence hall that houses 895 people, and continuing about two hours later at Norris Hall, an engineering building.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Yahoo says 21 dead.

    The spree supposedly covered multiple buildings on the campus from class rooms to dorm rooms.

    You ain't lying. I'm not saying I condone it, but if someone was mad enough to shoot a person they were angry with...at least there are answers in that action. What could possibly motivate someone to basically just start shooting upwards of 50 people?

    The only thing I shot off in college was my mouth when I drank. I don't get this at all.

    Trust me, not making light of this in ANY way, but I had been wondering what it would take to get people on the news to move away from the Imus story.

    I don't see why students would not give their parents their schedules?? I was not talking about a university doing it...I meant for the parents to get it from the kids before they head off to school. I never realized it was taboo to share that info with your parents??? (Especially if they are paying for your education)

    A lot of students attend by scholarship and other means of financial aid, so payment really isnt an issue.

    Of course, kids probably do share their schedules with their parents, but the kids are either pulling the covers over the parents eyes, or the parents are turning a blind eye to the kids. I think that will change after this.

    People are like canned sardines in classrooms like that. I can't imagine the terror those people were going through. There was nowhere for them to go.

    Just awful.
