    Deadly shooting at US university
    The campus has now been closed and students evacuated
    At least 22 people have been killed and 21 more injured after a gunman went on the rampage at the campus of Virginia Tech university in Virginia, US.

    Police say there were two separate shooting incidents - at West Ambler Johnston Hall, a student dormitory, and Norris Hall, an engineering building.

    The incidents were about two hours apart. Police say they believe there was one gunman and that he is dead.

    It is the deadliest shooting at a US educational facility.

    The state university in the town of Blacksburg is home to 26,000 students.

    Police say, Cho Seung Hui had apparently stalked at least two female students in 2005 and had been sent to a mental facility.

    Virginia Tech police questioned Cho Seung Hui several times in November and December of 2005.

    After professors and at least two female students told officers they were worried about their safety and his "annoying" behavior.

    Wendell Flinchum, Campus Police Chief said, "She made a complaint to the Virginia Tech Police and asked that Cho have no further contact with her."

    During that time, an acquaintance also told police they were worried Cho was depressed and might commit suicide.

    The string of events led to an evaluation by psychologists.

    Flinchum also said, “A temporary detention order was obtained and Cho was taken to a mental health facility."

    He was released and returned to campus.
    University officials were given no information about the detention because of confidentiality laws.

    Now investigators are left to gather evidence and look for answers in this baffling case.

    There is a heavy police presence on the campus as this community continues it is struggle to cope with everything that has happened here.

    "It is definitely going to take a lot of time and a lot of grieving," said Victoria Athey, VA Tech student.

    As survivors remember and honor all of those gunned down in the rampage, classes at Virginia Tech have been suspended until at least Monday and many students have left the area to seek comfort from family and friends at home.

    "I want to see my parents, so many people didn't get to see their parents," said Lauren Moscater VA Tech student.

    For others it is important to be here and be together.

    Jennifer Micieli VA Tech student said, “I have not wanted to be alone this whole time because we are all in shock."

    So many are now leaning on a faith, that has been so severely tested over the last two days.

    Police 'regret' at killer's video
    Cho's package to NBC contained pictures of himself with guns
    Police probing the deadly shootings at Virginia Tech University have criticised the decision of US network NBC to show footage of the killer.

    Cho Seung-hui sent a package of videos, photographs and writing to NBC on the day of the shootings.

    But police said on Thursday that the videos - showing an angry Cho ranting and pointing guns at the camera - added little to their investigation.

    A total of 33 people, including Cho, died at two locations on Monday.

    NBC broadcast new footage of 23-year-old killer gunman on Thursday and defended its decision to use Cho's videos.

    "I'm not sure we'll ever fully understand why this happened, but I do think this is as close as we'll come to having a glimpse inside the mind of a killer," Steve Capus, head of NBC News, said on the network's Today programme.

    'Incredibly disturbing'

    Cho's package contained 1,800 words of text and 43 photos, 11 of them showing Cho aiming handguns at the camera. He also sent 28 video clips.

    Campus begins to mourn


    Gunman's message

    Speaking at Virginia Tech, Steve Flaherty, superintendent of Virginia State Police, said he appreciated NBC's co-operation, but regretted the decision to broadcast the tapes.

    "A lot of folks saw images that were very disturbing," he told a news conference.

    "This is a kind of image that people in my line of work have to see, and I'm worried that people who are not used to seeing them had to see them," he said.

    NBC's Mr Capus said he understood that many people would disagree with the decision to broadcast.

    "There is no way to look at without being profoundly upset, and it is incredibly disturbing."

    'I will no longer run'

    In the first set of videos aired by NBC, on Wednesday evening, Cho was shown ranting at the camera and railing against rich, privileged students.

    He blamed others for forcing him to kill.

    "You had 100 billion chances and ways to have avoided today.

    "But you decided to spill my blood. You forced me into a corner and gave me only one option. The decision was yours. Now you have blood on your hands that will never wash off," Cho said.

    "I didn't have to do this. I could have left. I could have fled. But now I will no longer run," the gunman said.

    Police have already revealed that Cho, who moved to the US with his family from South Korea in 1992, was admitted to a mental health unit in late 2005.

    He was sent for evaluation after two female students made complaints against him, they said.

    But they have not definitively linked him to any of those killed on campus.

    Student complaints

    Two people were killed at the West Ambler Johnston Hall, a university dormitory, at 0715 on Monday.

    Two hours later Cho killed 30 others, plus himself, at the Norris Hall complex across campus.

    Authorities have not yet linked the 23-year-old to any of those he killed.

    Police say the same gun was used at both locations but have not definitely proved that Cho was at West Ambler Johnston at the time of the shootings there.

    The complaints by students against Cho were made in November and December 2005, around the time Cho's English teachers raised concerns over his writing and general behaviour.

    In the aftermath of the shootings, teachers and fellow students have spoken of Cho's extreme moods, violent writings and unpredictable behaviour.
