WASHINGTON, April 16 (Reuters) - President George W. Bush was "horrified" by the shooting at Virginia Tech university that killed at least 22 people including the suspected gunman and wounded many others, the White House said on Monday.

The federal government was monitoring the situation and while state and local authorities were investigating, federal assets were available if Virginia should request them, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said.

"He was horrified and his immediate reaction was one of deep concern for the families of the victims, the victims themselves, the students, the professors and all of the people of Virginia who have dealt with this shocking incident," she said.
