Shooting report at Virginia Tech prompts lockdown, search

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A report of shots fired on the campus of Virginia Tech University on Thursday prompted a lockdown of the campus and search for a white male suspect on foot, the school said on its website.

Virginia Tech was the scene of a massacre by a lone gunman in April 2007 which killed 33 people.
