One witness says shooter fired in silence with no specific target
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - One student says the shooting in a classroom buildling at Virginia Tech began with a thunderous sound, like an "enormous hammer," followed by screams and more banging. Junior Alec Calhoun says students then realized the sounds were gunshots. Calhoun says he started flipping over desks to make hiding places. Others dashed to the windows of the second-floor classroom, kicking out the screens and jumping out.
