Virginia Tech is reporting a gunman on campus.

The alert says the gunman was reported near Dietrick Hall.
No other details are immediately available.

Methinks this/next time around a few students are packing heat so they dont get sucker punched again.

Most of my family works for a large university. There are very few students on campus right now. It won't be the students who are packing, if anything it will be the employees. First report I heard said the witnesses stated the man was carrying a pistol, and then it was possibly a sawed off shotgun. But covered by a white cloth? This dosen't make much sense. In the summertime the university makes its money off "camps". The news stated that it was the campers who saw the suspect. At least at our university, campers are usually midteen trust fund babies with too much time on their hands. If there is an actual gunman, then I hope he is caught before he can do any damage. IMO, it could just be bored kids, trying to stir up a little excitment, it wouldn't be the first time.

3:05p ET: UPDATE — Virginia Tech says the campus alert has been lifted and the university can resume normal activity.

Thankfully it seems this time nothing has happened
