It's the deadliest shooting rampage to date to occur in the United States. A gunman meticulously prepared himself with weapons, ammunition and body armor for an assault on the Virginia Tech university campus, killing 32 people.
Rumours abound that the attack resulted from what was supposed to be a lovers' feud. His girlfriend, who was from Virginia Tech, had left him for another guy. She was the main target of the attack, it was claimed.
Details are sketchy, but investigations are underway to find out the real cause of the attack. Our hearts go out to the men and women of VT, and you have our deepest sympathies and condolences.
For more information:
- Gunman kills 32 at Virginia Tech before being killed
- Highly unlikely this was a spur of the moment emotional move (VT shooting)
- God Bless Virginia Tech
