Exclamation 32 killed in deadliest US campus shooting

32 killed in deadliest US campus shooting



At least 32 people were reportedly killed and more than two dozen wounded at Virginia Tech University on Monday in the deadliest campus shooting in US history.

The police said the gunman had died after the rampage in a dormitory at Virginia Tech and a separate, much deadlier, fusillade in a building housing engineering classrooms two hours later. The gunman first walked into the university dormitory and opened fire, killing at least one person. The others were killed later in the classroom building.

The university reported on its website that 22 people had been confirmed killed, surpassing the 15 who died in the April 1999 shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado.

No Indian was among those killed or injured, according to the Indian Students Association (ISA) of Virginia Tech. “But we have not been getting any response from the cellphone of an Indian girl who was in the same building where the shooting took place,” said Chetan Mogal, ISA treasurer.

Re: 32 killed in deadliest US campus shooting

very sad and traumatising for students... very sad for those who had class early monday morning and died as a result...

i know a few desi students at VTech... all r fine and they got news of the event early morning...

it'll be weird going to those classrooms knowing people were killed there... i dont know how i'd feel in such a class...

Re: 32 killed in deadliest US campus shooting

one eye-witness that ganji erin something chik described him as a tall asian with ammo vest...

first of all how did he get so many bullets... i guess he fired 100s of shots...

second, the cops dont know if the two incidents r linked... one shot in dorm and rest in engg. hall...

third, it seems they had bomb threats only last week... wat did cops do to find the source and be ready for such an eventuality... campus police only go on beats around univs and unlock doors if ppl. r locked out... from my knowledge they r not effective unless ppl call them...

Here's the info on the deceased professor.

Quote:



New Delhi: As a stunned United States comes to terms with the gruesome shooting on the Virginia Tech University campus that claimed 33 lives, there’s bad news for India as well.

Reports have it that an Indian-origin professor is among those killed in the campus massacre.



Professor G V Loganathan of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering was teaching in a class in the Norris Hall – one of the crime scenes – when the gunman went on rampage.

His colleague Prof Raman Kumar confirmed the news of Loganathan’s death to CNN-IBN.

According to Raman, Loganathan was taking a lecture when the second shooting occurred. He was killed around 0915 hrs (local time), Raman confirmed.

When CNN-IBN contacted a shaken Raman, he was at Lognathan’s residence and said he got the confirmation from the authorities at the University.

However, Raman said no other details were made available and police were not willing to give out any information regarding the deceased or the injured to anyone except the immediate family.

Another of Loganathan's colleagues, Prof Mallika Kumar told CNN-IBN that the news of Prof's deaths broke around 1700 hrs (local time). "Police gave out the information after we tried locating him in local hospitals. I think they are giving out information of those killed one by one," said Prof Kumar.

Remembering Loganathan as a "well-known" professor, Kumar said he was renowned for his teaching techniques and had served the university for over 15 years.

"The Indian community is really supportive at this point of time and lots of students came to pay homage," he added.
