Virginia Tech officials have ordered students to remain inside and canceled classes after a police officer was shot near campus.

A prison escapee is considered armed and dangerous and was seen on Virginia Tech's campus in Blacksburg, Va.

24-year old William Charles Morva had been taken to a hospital after suffering a sprained wrist and leg.

While there, police say Morva took a deputy's gun and shot to death an unarmed hospital guard. Morva then fled and remains at large.

Police report the suspect is now wearing a tie-dye shirt, khaki shorts, and is barefoot.
