Virginia Tech shooting: Lockdown lifted, weapon found
University officials have not confirmed that the second person found dead in a parking lot is the gunman, but said that a weapon was found near the body.
During a traffic stop on campus, the suspect shot and killed a Virginia Tech police officer and then fled on foot through a nearby parking lot, officials said.
A second person was later found dead in that parking lot, the university said.
An intense search for the gunman followed, with state police, FBI agents and officers with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searching the campus.
