Police: No gunfire at Virginia Tech dorm 2 hours ago

Virginia Tech police say there were no gunshots fired near a residence hall on campus.

Authorities locked down a dorm Thursday afternoon after two people reported hearing something that sounded like gunfire. Police are still investigating.

A university spokesman said the sounds may have come from a construction site nearby.

Police from Virginia Tech and nearby departments searched every room of Pritchard Hall, a dorm on the Blacksburg campus that is home to 1,000 students. No one was allowed in or out of the dorm, but the entire campus was not locked down.

In 2007, 32 people were killed by a gunman on campus who later killed himself.
