Is the WaPo a credible source or did they quote a news conference? As of lst night, they had identified the shooter as a Chinese national.

Cho’s identitiy has been confirmed with a positive fingerprint match on the guns used in the rampage and with immigration materials. It is believed that he was the shooter in both incidents yesterday. Sources say Cho was carrying a backpack that contained receipts for a March purchase of a Glock 9 mm pistol, sources said. Witnesses had also told authorities that the shooter was carrying a backpack.

Where did he learn to shoot this well? Handgunning isn’t a ‘natural act’ and its pretty clear he was a good shot. I doubt he acquired this level of skill in a couple of weeks.

Media are a bunch of dopes. First the guy’s Chinese. Next he’s here on a student visa, yet not a Va Tech student. Now he’s South Korean and a student. They can blame the Tech leadership to no end, yet can misreport everything with impunity. Asswipes.

And these slogans such as “Massacre at Virginia Tech” and the like just drive me nuts.

I guess we can have a “who can hold their breath the longest” contest as we await spontaneous street demonstrations of US citizens marching and near-rioting, demanding the withdrawal of Koreans from the US. I’m sarcastically referring to the accidental roadside deaths of two S. Korean children some years ago from a swerving US military vehicle.

I think the “receipt in the backback” angle is a little too cute.

Cho was a South Korean native who had immigrated to this country

So he was here on a VISA or Green Card.

The man who, on that other forum, claimed to be the seller to this person, was telling the truth.

Obviously pure speculation on my part, but Centreville has a big problem with gangs, including Asian gangs.

Yes, my thought exactly. Sure I keep receipts for over 2 weeks in my backpack. Just want to make sure I can exchange the gun later for something that fits./Sarcasm!

Article further stated he was from Centreville. There are a number of shooting ranges within the Centreville area, notably the NRA facility and Blue Ridge Arsenal. Wouldn’t be surprised if he shot at one or both of them. Not to mention the Blacksburg area.....

No, the WaPo is not a credible source.

In this case it appears they happen to be correct.

Gunman was student, Va. Tech president confirms

09:41 AM EDT on Tuesday, April 17, 2007

Associated Press & 13News

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- A Virginia Tech student was behind the massacre of at least 30 people locked inside a campus building in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history, the university said Tuesday.

Cho Seung-Hui, 23, a senior and native of South Korea, was enrolled in the undergraduate program as an English major.

He was a resident alien from Centerville, VA and lived in Harper Hall, officials said.

They also announced that a 9mm and .22 caliber handgun were recovered from Norris Hall. Ballistics from shootings at Norris Hall and West Ambler -Johnston Hall show one of the two weapons was used in both shootings.

“Well, I’m screwed. They found a receipt in the gunman’s pocket indicating that he bought the gun from me in March. ATF is at my shop right now. See you later, I’m on my way to the shop right now.”

We probably won’t know anything close to the real truth for at least a couple more days, if not weeks.
