Senseless death

- - - Thirty-three people, including the gunman, were killed at a Virginia university Monday in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Federal law enforcement officials said the gunman killed himself after he shot dozens of people at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, in southwest Virginia.

In addition to the 33 dead, hospitals reported that 15 people were injured, some of whom had jumped from the fourth floor of the classroom building where the second wave of shootings took place.

Five were in stable condition; the conditions of the others were not immediately reported.

I don't know the area or anybody there, but it just plain hurts. I feel so sorry for that entire school and their families.
