Local S.W.A.T. team members congregate near a parking lot on the campus of Virginia Tech after a shooting at the school near Blacksburg, Virginia. It was the first gunfire on campus since 33 people were killed in 2007 in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The deaths came on the same day university officials were in Washington appealing a fine that federal officials gave them over the school's response five years ago.
