The latest from the AP:

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Tech campus police chief says at least 22 are dead after a shooting the university.
Gunfire erupted in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech on Monday.

The university told students to stay inside and away from windows as police swept the campus and worked to establish whether the gunman acted alone.

On the website, Tech reported the shootings at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus at West Ambler Johnston, a co-ed residence hall that houses 895 people, and said there were “multiple victims” at Norris Hall, an engineering building.

All entrances to the campus were closed and classes canceled through Tuesday.

“There’s just a lot of commotion. It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on,” said student Jason Anthony Smith, 19, who lives in the dorm where shooting took place.

Aimee Kanode, a freshman from Martinsville, said the shooting happened on the 4th floor of West Ambler Johnston dormitory, one floor above her room. Kanode’s resident assistant knocked on her door about 8 a.m. to notify students to stay put.

“They had us under lockdown,” Kanode said. “They temporarily lifted the lockdown, the gunman shot again.”

It was second time in less than a year that the campus was closed because of a shooting.

From the school website (that is swamped with traffic and very slow):

In addition to an earlier shooting today in West Ambler Johnston, there has been a multiple shooting with multiple victims in Norris Hall.

Police and EMS are on the scene.

Police have one shooter in custody and as part of routine police procedure, they continue to search for a second shooter.

The Collegiate Times newspaper has a timeline on the shootings.
