It's something no student at Virgina Tech thought would ever happen again.
"I was in shock because we had bomb threats this past week and for something like this to happen...," said Virginia Tech Junior Steven Berry.
Rashid Kabia got the news from watching his television, "At that time I heard one dead one injured, and the numbers just kept going up."
What he didn't know was his roommate had been shot. "I called the hospitals, I was trying to figure out where he was out so we can all go visit him, but we have no clue where he's at."
But this large campus community is tightly knit and each student's heart, thoughts and prayers are with each other. "It's just not me. People's families, I'm thinking of all that stuff," said Kabia. Sophomore Amanda Jones added, "I can't believe this would happen at VA Tech, I fell this is a safe school."
The school will offer counseling for students and a vigil is planned for Tuesday night.
