The campus of Virginia Tech University was locked down Thursday when three children attending a summer camp said they saw a man holding what looked like a gun. The university issued an alert on its website at 9:37 this morning telling students and employees to stay inside and lock their doors. The Virginia Tech campus was the site of a mass shooting that killed 33 people in 2007. Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM’s Steven Gallo spoke with University of Florida Police Department Captain Jeff Holcomb about the issue of campus security.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/newHolcomb.mp3]
