Virginia Tech campus in lockdown
Richmond - Virginia Tech, site of the worst mass shooting in modern US history, says gunshots have been reported on campus, and authorities are seeking a suspect.
The university said in a Thursday post on Twitter that the shots were reported at the coliseum parking lot and that people should remain inside.
The suspect is described as a white male wearing gray sweat pants, gray hat with neon green brim, maroon hoodie and backpack.
A message left with the university was not immediately returned.
Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people and wounded 25 in the April 16 2007 attack.
The shooting comes the same day as Virginia Tech is appealing a $55 000 fine by the education department in connection with the university's response to the 2007 rampage.
