I want to know if the shooter is a student, etc. and why the campus wasn't put on lockdown after the first shooting...why weren't classes cancelled right away?
Yeah, classes were canceled at 10:30...which was after both shootings had happened. Which I think was weird.

I got an e-mail telling us of the 1st shooting at 9:30am, and I got an e-mail telling us to stay put at 10am.

Isn't this the anniversary of the Columbine shootings?

This simply awful! How could someone do something like this!

Mia, my thoughts and prayers are with you...

My heart breaks for the victims and their families. There are no words to describe how horrendously tragic this is.

That's probably true. Everyone I have talked to today has a friend or relative down there as a student or on staff. This definitely is affecting a lot of people.

Mia, that's such a relief that your student is ok. Very glad to hear it.

21 dead and 21 injured. All I can keep thinking is that's the number of students I had last semester. It would be like one whole class injured and one whole class dead.

The students must be terrified not really knowing what's going on and not being able to leave their rooms.

That's a blessing knowing your student is okay.

It is odd...

I'm glad that you and your student are okay.
