Interesting comments from a CBC interview with Aaron Cohen, S.W.A. T instructor. He was asked what information he would like to know which would clarify what happened. He replied that he wanted to know why, based on the footage he has been seeing, were S.W.A.T officers standing outside and slowly moving. He felt that they should, being armed,be running inside the building to prevent more deaths as that is what they are trained to do. Providing perimeter security is not their job. He said every second they stood outside was possibly the death of another innocent person. I am sure the actions of campus police and authorities will be evaluated in the near future.

Based on the preliminary info, it seems that the gunman may have went to the dorm to target a person and then went to the classroom to target a particular group of people or the person who may or may not have been at that dorm.

to all. They said 32 dead on our local TV, on two locations but police believe it was the same shooter.

Oh, Laura...I'm so sorry. Your friend and everyone affected by this will be in my thoughts and prayers.

My library just lost a dear, brave, kindhearted Techinical Services clerk on Saturday morning (cancer), so it's been a sad place today even before this horrible news, which has further saddened us all. The grey day outdoors matches our spirits.

Too much death...I'm sick and tired of death!!!!!!!

As cheesy as this may sound I can feel your prayers...thank you all of you. All of us here feel sick to our stomachs.

This is just...ugh...so horrifying...sickening...ugh my goodness. Again, thank you for your prayers, none of my thoughts are coherent right now...that video from the cell phone camera where you can hear the gunshots gives me goosebumps...the disgusting...ah...I can't think anymore.

It looked to me in that video that the shooter may have been outside at that point.

What an awful thing to come home to - I can't imagine what a nightmare it must be to those of you who have connections to the campus and people there.

Now, the radio says it began as a fight in the dorm room

that the RA came in and was shot


and there is no conformation that is was only one shooter

there may have been two shooters



and again I am caught up in hearsay and speculation

and again I believe that in 24 - 48 hours

we will have most of these answers

Press conference by police at 430 EST. They should provide some factual information on the events of today.

I think its possible that there was more than one shooter. I find it hard to believe one person could kill and wound 60 people.

I can't fucking believe this. I really really can't.

I thought Columbine was it. And Columbine's anniversary is on Friday too.
