No, the WaPo is not a credible source.

In this case it appears they happen to be correct.

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.
