    School Shooting at my College, Just a few minutes ago!

    Well folks you're the first to hear about it. It happened next to my building. 2 black males apparently shot someone in the parking lot downstairs. We have an emergency notification system and at least it worked within minutes. Man, this is getting rediculous.

    Wow, I'm sure that's a scary situation to be in. Looks like today was a bad day, another shooting in TN just earlier also.

    I am not sure if shootings on campus are really happening more often or if we are just more aware of them at a national level. Obviously the V-Tech and North IL are special cases, but violence on campus is hardly new.

    I am glad to see the urgency of the response (both police and public) to this and similar events. If we always responded to violent crime like this there would be a lot less of it.

    you know all of these shootings lately have got me thinking... Have there always been this many shooting occuring and they just werent reported on, or is this nation becoming so bad that we cant even attend a place of higher education without fear of being shot. Personally I would love to carry while I'm getting a higher education but they wont let me for fear that my holstered gun is going to come out and do harm. This nation is so screwed up in their thinking its not even funny

    nutz4utwo and rangerman, very true, but I've been here awhile (over 10 years) and it seems like we hear of school shootings much more than we used to. The first one here that I can recall.

    BTW, the emergency notification system worked great! Nothing like a headsup with the shooting literally only minutes old. Still too late to react if you're the target in a classroom.

    Sad day in my area indeed...This occured a couple miles away.. We got a memo a little after it occured, our secuirty brought the smokers inside and from what im hearing ensured all our doors were locked. Little relief since its a strictly no "have anything you can protect yourself with" company.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.

    I wonder if the shooting was part of the carrry over from yseterdays shooting in Little Rock. The whole story is not out yet but serveral teenagers from different HS got into a shooting match at one of the parks in LR just after school let out yesterday. I am thinking the said that 11 students were hit on last night's news....
