Radford University locked down after shooting death near campus


edition.cnn.com

(CNN) -- Students at Radford University in Virginia locked their doors and were being warned to stay inside Thursday after a man was shot and killed near campus.

A man was shot in the chest and killed in a residential area a couple of blocks from the school's Radford, Virginia, campus at about 9:10 p.m., according to university spokesman Michael Hemphill.

He said authorities believe the shooter then fled onto campus.

In a series of phone calls, e-mails and text messages, students were being warned that the university was on lockdown.

The spokesman said he did not know if the shooting victim was a student at the university of about 7,500 students.

City, state and campus police were searching for the shooter, Hemphill said.

Virginia Tech University police were also helping in the search because Virginia Tech is about 20 minutes away from the shooting, according to the spokesman.

I don’t think it is one of those suicide mass attacks we have seen recently. Hope they get the killer soon before more people loose their lives.

I'm 15 minutes from there. Let's hope he's not another Cho, and is finished with his destruction.

Not a lot of extra information out there. Fox News seemed to have some information on the suspect.

I am 99% sure this is drug related. The US should concentrate more on its own problems before worrying about other countries. Another Mexico in the making

Not likely. I lived in Radford (RHS 91)at one time and the area we are talking about is not an area that would have those kind of issues. Maybe on the other side of town. I will ask my friends that live there still about this later on another site.

Drugs are everywhere nowadays. You may not have had this problem before, but everything has a start.

Can you elaborate on that. Is it because the person is Black?

Absolutely, there are drugs here. Not just Mary Jane either. The really nasty ones.

Nothing I would be proud of for this area.

Do you think Beaver Cleaver ever had to worry about Crack dealers, and friends dying with overdoses?

Uhoh, someone's going to start name calling vewy vewy soon now.

Let me try and save us all some time here:

"You said fits the profile"

"I meant of a drug user"

"No you didn't, you meant because the killer is black"

"I never said that"

"No, but it's what you meant"

etc etc etc etc etc
