    This is my second-choice school I'm applying to...:eek:


    Thoughts go out to everybody at VTech, and their families. I have a lot of friends that go there, so Facebook is spammed with statuses/posts about it.

    Lots of rumors flying around this event.. police are saying that the shooting happened at a traffic stop, and the shooter fled to the campus (not sure who the second killed person was.) I still don't think they've found the shooter, though.

    Ironic: The head of VTT police is visiting DC today to give a speech on what they did wrong in the 2007 shooting.

    Still no word on the identity of the shooter or even a possible motive. It seems to be a spontaneous shooting on the part of the shooter (as opposed to a planned murder) followed by his suicide.

    A terribly tragic event, but the coincidence of the location with that of the 2007 killings is, fortunately, just that.

    When I first started seeing the reports, I just assumed it was some sort of anniversary, and that the clips were from previous incident. I kept waiting - hoping - for the voice-overs to change to "and on this anniversary....." ....

    Of course, it didn't...

    .... how many more times?
