Virginia Tech Police Chief Wendell Flinchum just held a press conference to update the press of the situation. At this time, officers have yet to find the reported gunman, but the three kids that first identified the man were found to be credible. Officers are still searching the campus, but have not found any sign yet.

As we earlier reported, a gunman was reportedly spotted on the campus of Virginia Tech this morning around 9:37 A.M. The white male was allegedly spotted by three students attending camp at the school. The kids said they saw him possibly holding a handgun covered by a cloth of some kind and walking quickly in the direction of the volleyball courts. Shortly after, the school was put on lockdown as local police arrived to search for the gunman.

The alert and lockdown is still in affect and there are still thankfully no reports of anyone being hurt.

We hope everyone stays safe!

    Officials at Virginia Tech university, scene of the worst school shooting in US history, on Thursday locked down the campus after three youths said they saw a white man POSSIBLY carrying a handgun.
    So far, police have not found anyone matching the description given by the youths, who were attending a camp at the university in Blacksburg, Virginia, but were still patrolling the campus in search of the man.
    The university said that at 9:09 am (1309 GMT), the three youths saw a "white male, six feet tall, with light brown hair outside of New Residence Hall East holding what MAY have been a handgun."
    Officers responded immediately to the area but found no one matching the description. Police have encountered no other witnesses reporting this individual or anything suspicious," the university said.

    You're not CNN Hilton, no one cares about your hyped up stories.

    Actually HairPlugs for Hilton, I am on the VT campus right now and this IS a serious situation, which was all that Perez was trying to portray. The entire town of Blacksburg is locked-down and on high alert. So far, there have been no sightings of the supposed gun-man, but the witnesses' story is said to be credible and the FBI is on their way to investigate.
