Police were called to the scene of a fight to the 500 block of Hunts Club Road in the Terrace View Apartment complex on Tuesday evening.
Neighbors didn’t report hearing anything, and were surprised when Blacksburg police officers knocked on the door to collect statements.
“All I know is that I was upstairs on my computer, heard a knock at the door, came down, and there was a police officer,” said Nick Grippen a junior computer science major that lives next door to the house in question.
“I heard nothing out here. They had four or five officers, and one of them had a shotgun. They said there was a fight, and someone had reported it.” Grippen said.
Crime scene photographers took photos of the apartment door, as six cops huddled around the scene of the alleged fight.
As of 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Blacksburg Police had not yet issued a public report and Virginia Tech Police had not issued a VT alert. VT alerts are used “when the Virginia Tech Police Department or university administration determines there is an immediate threat to the university community,” according the VT alert webpage.
Terrace View leasing office said that until they receive an official police report, it isn’t able to make an announcement to the community.
