Fellow Students Worried that Cho Could be a Shooter Someday

By  | 

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - There were many warning signs that Virginia Tech senior Cho Seung-Hui was a very troubled man.

As an English major, his writings were violent and twisted. He was a loner who wrote a question mark instead of his name on a class sign-in sheet.

A former classmate says the screenplays Cho wrote for a class they took together were like "something out of a nightmare." Ian MacFarlane says he and other students were seriously worried about whether Cho "could be a school shooter."

Cho has been identified as the person responsible for the deadliest school shooting in U.S history.

He and his family emigrated from South Korea in 1992, and he was a legal, permanent resident.

Virginia Governor Tim Kaine says he'll appoint a panel to review the university's handling of the situation. But Kaine warns against making snap judgments and says he has "nothing but loathing" for those who would use the tragedy for political gain.
