Va. Tech officials say a gunman has been reported on campus.

The university issued an alert on its website at 9:37 a.m.

telling students and employees to stay inside and secure

doors.

The alert says the gunman was reported near Dietrick Hall, a

three-story dining facility. The dining hall is steps away from the

dorm where the first shootings took place in the 2007 that left 33

dead.

The school says on its website that three juveniles attending a

camp at the school reported seeing a man holding what may have been

a handgun. They said it was covered by a cloth or covering of some

sort, and that the man was walking in the direction of the

volleyball courts.
