ALINA CHO, co-anchor:
A dismissed student from a small law school in Western Virginia is under arrest for a deadly shooting rampage. The dean at the Appalachian School of Law, a professor and a student were killed. Three other students were wounded. The alleged gunman is a naturalized US citizen from Nigeria who flunked out last year but was allowed to return, only to be dismissed again this week.

On Capitol Hill, the Hart Senate office building is being prepared to reopen tomorrow. Officials say it is now free of anthrax three months after a letter filled with billions of spores was sent to Majority Leader Tom Daschle. And two House office buildings where anthrax was detected are expected to reopen next week.
You know, a good friend of mine works for a senator in another office building who was nice enough to let some other senators use his office.
CHO: Cramped quarters.
McGINTY: He didn’t know they’d be hanging around for three or four months after the thing began last Fall.
CHO: Right. I’m just glad it’s open because now we don’t have to say the words ‘anthrax-free’ anymore. It’s hard to say.
McGINTY: Tough one. That is a tough one.
