University Shooting in Virginia

A Virginia university was on lockdown earlier today after a former student entered a dorm hall and shot three people. The alleged shooter entered the building at Hampton University by following a pizza deliveryman, and then shot the man, a dorm night manager, and himself. None of the victims have life-threatening injuries. The motive of the shooter, who remains in custody, is unclear. Meanwhile, the university’s response to the disaster is being praised—a combination of text messages, e-mails, and phone calls warned students about the lockdown.
