The university was struck today with a tragedy of monumental proportions.
According Kare11 the university, situated in Blacksburg, southwest Virginia, will be closed through Tuesday and faculty and staff members were asked to go home effective immediately after the incident.
According to the china View this was the deadliest shooting accident that took place in a campus in the U.S. history. Previously, the deadliest campus shooting in the country took place in 1966 at the University of Texas at Austin, in which 17 people, including the gunman, were killed.
