(Blacksburg, VA) This black-and-white photo was obtained from the Fairfax County, VA public school system by the Associated Press. The image depicts Cho Seung-Hui, who police have identified as the gunman suspected of carrying out the Virginia Tech killings that left 33 people dead.
Cho Seung-Hui was a South Korean native and a resident alien who lived in Centerville, VA. Police identified him as the shooter by linking the fingerprints at the scene to those on his immigration documents. Cho entered the country through Detroit with his family in 1992, at the age of eight.
The parents of Cho Seung-Hui live in Fairfax County, VA, just outside of Alexandria, Va, and Cho graduated from Westfield High School, a Fairfax County public school, in 2003.
