VA Governor to Return Home from Japan Following Deadly Shooting

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia's governor is on his way home from Japan after today's deadly shooting at Virginia Tech University.

Governor Tim Kaine had been in Tokyo, where he was set to begin a two-week Asian trade mission. But instead he'll be back in Virginia tomorrow.

At least 21 people were killed by a gunman at the school. A statement from Kaine says it is "difficult to comprehend senseless violence on this scale."

Kaine says the state is working closely with police, medical officials and Virginia Tech to provide any additional resources and support that may be needed.
