Two people, including a police officer, were dead after a shooting on Thursday afternoon on the campus of Virginia Tech, the scene of a 2007 massacre in which 33 people were killed, university officials said.


The shooting took place around noon, a university spokesman said, after a campus police officer made what she described as a routine traffic stop in a parking lot near McComas Hall, a gym and sports building. During the stop, the officer was shot and killed, said the spokesman, Mark Owczarski, director of news and information.

Witnesses reported seeing the suspect running toward a different parking lot, called the Cage, near Duck Pond Drive. At that parking lot, a second person was found, also dead. It was unclear whether that person had been shot.
