APPOMATTOX, Va. - A lone gunman shot "multiple" people to death and wounded others Tuesday in central Virginia, state police said.

More than 100 law enforcement officials have surrounded the gunman in a wooded area just outside of Appomattox, said Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller.

Police said the violence was discovered shortly after noon when an injured man was found on a rural stretch of road.

When officers responded, someone fired at them. A state police helicopter had to land with a ruptured fuel tank. The officers were not injured.

It is not known what prompted the shootings.
