    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Details still very sketchy - up to 32 dead now? (possible considering already 20 were confirmed.

    Largest mass/campus killing in US history already. Some of the cell phone videos are just insane - it was like a guerilla war on their campus, like something out of Iraq.

    Just a highly disturbing story. This apparently happened over a couple of hours time.

    Horrifying. My best friend is a Chemical Engineering major there. Someone called me and told me that at least 20 something people were slaughtered in an engineering building on campus, I freaked out. Luckily, he stayed home an extra day and wasn't on campus today. He's reasonably numb however. He hangs out in a building 75 feet away from Norris (where the masacre occured). Awful.
