Virginia Tech Dorm Shooting: "22 Killed"

Reports indicate as many as 22 people have been killed at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia... at least 21 others injured. Police say the gunman is also dead.

Authorities say shootings occurred at a dorm and a classroom in an engineering building.

Officials closed down the campus after the shooting, and students were told to stay in their homes and away from windows.

One student who lives in the dorm where the shooting took place says, '"There's just a lot of commotion.''

It's the second time in a year that the school has been shut down by violence. In August, the opening day of classes was canceled and the campus was closed when an escaped jail inmate allegedly killed a hospital guard off campus and fled to the campus area.
