Reports are coming in from Virginia Tech, that despite the lockdown, the police are taking the report from the three children very seriously, and are still seeking the suspect for questioning.
Yesterday, when the man was spotted, the immediate flashback of the 2007 shooting rampage went through everyone’s mind. In these situations, it is not uncommon for a copycat to attempt to replicate what they saw, in some hopes of capturing the attention that the first has gotten.
The school went into lockdown yesterday and there was plenty of shelter in place going on, but at the end of the day, the police came up empty. There were rumors circulating that this may have been a hoax, but that has been basically dismissed at this point. The police still believe that there was a person there, possibly armed.
