8 December 2011

RICHMOND, Virginia – Virginia Tech officials have confirmed a police officer and one other person were killed in a shooting on campus.

There are reports that a suspect may be in custody.

A campus-wide alert tells students and faculty to stay inside and lock doors.

The shooting comes the same day as Virginia Tech is appealing a $55,000 fine by the Education Department in connection with the university’s response to a 2007 rampage that left 33 people dead.

The suspect is described as a white male wearing gray sweat pants, gray hat with neon green brim, maroon hoodie and backpack.

A message left with the university wasn’t immediately returned.

Campus police referred all questions to the university.

A student gunman killed 32 students and faculty and then shot himself on the campus in 2007.
