Several popular models for Gamma-Ray Burst (GRB) progenitors are also expected sources for gravitational wave emission, including core-collapse supernovae and compact binary mergers. Using information from the Gamma-ray bursts Coordinates Network and the LIGO and Virgo gravitational wave observatories, we search the data for gravitational wave events in coincidence with known GRBs between November 4, 2005 and October 1, 2007. This poster will present the latest results. The observed limits on gravitational wave energy are used to construct a minimum distance for each GRB which does not have a measured redshift.
