    Two killed on Virginia Tech campus

    A police officer is one of those who have been killed


    UPDATED 3:55 p.m.: The Montgomery County Public School system is going to start releasing students.

    Here is the release schedule:

    "Schools in Motngomery County have started students dismissal following all reasonable safety precautions. Middle and high schools will dismiss first, followed by elementary schools once the secondary bus runs are complete. For students who ride the bus, parents across all grade levels should expect transportation delays of 60-90 minutes later than their student’s usual bus arrival time. For those who wish to pick up their students, schools within the Town of Blacksburg dismiss once police presence has arrived to the school location. Parents at all other school locations may now begin to pick up their students in an orderly manner. Bus transportation will continue for all schools with a 60-90 minute delay expected."
