Matty was such a sweet kid. He really

and he'd be taking pictures of the
girls. It was at knee level, so most of
the girls at VT were wearing pants, so
it's not like they were under their
skirts, but he was taking these
photographs. The kids would say to me,
Nikki, he's taking these

GRAPHIC=VT Shooting This shooting has sparked debate over


gun control issues and now it's
questioning whether video games played
a role in Cho's behavior....??

ENG#=4 VO-NAT



VO-NAT The Washington Post is reporting


that several kids that went to
highschool with Cho claim he was a fan
of violent video games...

In particular, this one, it's
called Counterstrike.

*CG 2linel Courtesy
Gamespot It's a tactical firstperson shooting
game.....It allows players to shoot
with semi-realistic weapons.....

We heard many students describe
Cho as calm, leading some to question
if video games had served as
preparation...

One of our viewers, posed this
same thought on our open
forum....Before this information was
even released, this comment was posted
on our website.

I bet they find in this young
man's home a bunch of "frag" type first
person shooter games - i.e. Halo,
Unreal Tournament, Counterstrike, etc.
This is such a frag fantasy come true
for this man.

Now, in the gaming world, "frag"
refers to killing someone temporarily
in computer games.

Again, there are debates on both
sides of the fence when it comes to
linking violence in the real world to
violence in video games.
