Local political analyst Scott Hughes told KEEL News Monday morning his daughter is a third year student at the University of Virginia. His daughter is a Senior ___ , and when she received the news of an active shooter, immediately locked down her dorm, and ensured the safety of the residents in her dorm.

Scott also mentioned how the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech are rivals, but how the two campuses came together during the tragic shooting at Virginia Tech's campus in 2007, when a South Korean undergraduate student killed 32 people, wounding 17 others. Rivalries were forgotten as officials and students from UVA rallied around the shocked and hurting people on the Virgina Tech campus.
