The families of the victims of the 2007 mass shooting at Virginia Tech are offering their condolences to those affected by the Connecticut elementary school shooting.

The Virginia Tech Victims Family Outreach Foundation issued a statement Saturday that offered condolences and the services of the group's crisis response team.

The nonprofit group was created by the majority of the families of the victims and survivors of the 2007 mass shooting that left 33 dead, including the gunman.

Foundation president Joe Samaha says the immediate concern is for the families in Newtown "whose lives are now altered, forever." His daughter Reema was killed in what was the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Reema's sister was a student at the University of Virginia at the time of the shootings.
