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.”
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.)
