Tech Gunman Wrote English Paper About Mass Killing

August 29, 2007

Thursday the Virginia Tech panel is scheduled to release its report about the tragic April 16th shootings but some disturbing details of the report are already being released.

Seung Hui Cho reportedly wrote an English class paper about a gunman planning on a mass school shooting. The Tech panel says that they didn't receive the writings until last weekend.

Governor Tim Kaine says he is troubled that Virginia Tech student Seung-Hui Cho's violent class essays including one with a narrative similar to the mass shootings he carried out weren't widely shared with law enforcement and university officials.

Kaine said today the issue is "a significant feature" in the report due tomorrow.

Family members of those killed and injured by Cho hope the report will answer questions they've had since the shootings. Some have publicly questioned the decision not to cancel classes after the initial shootings in a dormitory that left two people dead.
