Virginia Tech Shooter Named

The University of Virginia has named the student accused of killing 32 people on campus yesterday: Cho Seung-Hui.

According to a news release posted on the university’s website, Cho was 23 and was “enrolled as an undergraduate student in his senior year as an English major at Virginia Tech. Cho, a South Korean native, was in the U.S. as a resident alien with a residence established in Centerville, Virginia.”

For the latest details, we recommend The Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Virginia Tech student newspaper The Collegiate Times, or Google News.

We’ll update our own Cho Seung-Hui biography as more details become available.

(Update: Virginia Tech has now created a special Web page for the tragedy, including a photo of Cho.)
