The victims of the Virginia Tech massacre were remembered at ceremonies in Richmond and Blacksburg. The shootings happened seven years ago Wednesday. One event was at Capitol Square in Richmond where state officials spoke near the Bell Tower. Governor McAuliffe attended the Virginia Tech Day of Remembrance in Blacksburg. Meanwhile, the school has paid the federal fines for its reaction to the shootings. The U.S. Department of Education says Tech paid two fines totaling $32,500 for violating the Clery Act. That requires universities to issue timely warnings about campus threats. Virginia Tech said they did not send out an initial campus-wide alert because police believed the first shootings were domestic in nature.
