“We have no sympathy in killing humans who have no respect for other people's lives."
Seung Hui-Cho (January 18, 1984 – April 16, 2007) was the man responsible for the deaths at the 2007 Virginia Tech University shooting.
The killing spree
Responsible for the deaths at Virginia Tech University, Cho killed 32 people and injured 25 others on April 16, 2007.
The massacre happened in 2 places, in between a 2-hour-interval. First, at his dorm, he fatally shot a resident and a resident hall supervisor student. Some time later, he sent a package, with his videos and manifesto in it to a post office, meant to be received by the NBC.
The second part of the attack was more carefully planned. Cho chained all the main exit doors shut, preventing any form of escape. He also left a note warning that if anyone tries to break open the door, a bomb would explode. During this wave of attack, Cho killed 30 students and staff members, with some people killed behind even locked doors. Of all the deaths, 28 were shot in the head.
Cho also used hollow point bullets, this is the reason on why there were so many deaths, with this massacre being the second worst in US history, after the bath school disaster perpetrated by Andrew Kehoe.
As law enforcement broke through the chains, Cho shot himself. His face was horrifically disfigured from the hollow point bullet that ended his life.
