Official: Va. Tech gunman believed to be dead

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

BLACKSBURG, VA (AP) — A law enforcement official says the gunman who fled after killing a police officer on campus is
believed to be dead.

The law enforcement official had knowledge of the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

After the officer was shot Thursday, authorities found a second body in a campus parking lot. It was not immediately clear if that second body was that of the gunman.

The shooting triggered a lockdown on the sprawling campus that in 2007 was the scene of the deadliest mass shooting in US history. School officials said earlier in the day that the officer was shot during a routine traffic stop.

The officer has not yet been identified.
