Local Student Among Dead at Va Tech

Ryan Clark of Martinez is one of the 31 victims of Monday’s shootings at Virginia Tech, according to Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins.

Clark is believed to have been shot in the first string of shootings that occurred in a dormitory.

Clark is the son of Stan and Lettie Clark of Old Petersburg Road. He has a twin brother.

An autopsy will be performed, but because of the high number of victims, it may take days to complete.
