BLACKSBURG, Virginia (Reuters) - At least 32 people were killed and more than two dozen wounded at Virginia Tech university on Monday in the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history, media said.

Fox News, CNN and the student-run university newspaper gave the death toll as 32. Officials earlier said at least 22 people were killed.

The rampage by what police believed was a lone gunman took place in two separate areas, first at a dormitory as students had begun criss-crossing the sprawling campus for morning classes, and then about two hours later at an engineering and science hall a half-mile away.

As usual, the mass murderer killed himself after committing his crimes. We don't have all the information yet, but I'm willing to bet that the gunman was alone in possessing a firearm, and knew that a school campus was one of the last placed he'd find those will or able to shoot back.

Join us in prayer for the families of the victims. And that something is done to better protect our kids.
