Five years after the tragic shooting at Virginia Tech, students remember.
Today marks five years since a student gunman at Virginia Tech killed 32 students and faculty members before turning his weapon on himself.
At midnight last night, members of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets and other students lit a candle at the campus memorial. It will stay lit through the day. A larger candlelight vigil is planned for tonight.
In prior years on April 16, classes have been suspended for the day in memory of those killed. But today, the fifth anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the school's students are going to class to honor the victims.
Provost Mark McNamee says the return to classes reflects the lives of those who were slain.
Governor Bob McDonnell has issued a proclamation recognizing April 16 as Virginia Tech Remembrance Day.
