GRUNDY, Virginia—A gunman killed three people and wounded three others during a shooting rampage at a lawschool in Grundy, Virginia.

Three wounded students were taken to hospital.

The law school, with an enrolment of about 170 students, opened in 1997 in a renovated junior high school in this small town about 200 kilometres west of Roanoke.

It graduated its first class of 34 in 2000.

The school has about 15 faculty members.
