deprive student victims of their
degrees from Virginia Tech.

The remaining students- -whether they
were directly in the line of fire or
not- -will be given broad latitude to
deicde for themselves how they complete
the academic year.

And a review commission is all-but

has gone on at Tech this week.

rdepompa@wdbj7.com Keith/Jean, Long before Cho Shung Wi Blacksburg snapped, there appeared to be warning
signs. He was accused of stalking, he
worried professors and scared
classmates and Tech Police even took
him to a mental health facility. But a

mental health expert from Virginia Tech
said today, there still is not clear
way to predict what someone might do.

because of his shyness and speech.



ED SPENCER: 53:33:00 He was described
as being very introverted, quiet,
non-communicative, in a world by
himself. :40



He came on Tech Police's radar in the
Fall of 2005 when two female students
accused him of stalking behaviors. Then
a friend said Cho was suicidal. Police
got a temporary detention order and Cho

was admitted to St. Albans for
treatment. The University says they
followed procedure.



CHRIS FLYNN: 34:51:00 Every person who
leaves a psychiatric facility needs
extended care and follow up. Who gets
notified, under a court order is
determined by HIPPA regulations and not
be the university. :04



Cho lived in Harper Hall this year with
five other roommates. A University
officials say that may be one of the
most telling facts of all.



ED SPENCER: 40:51:00 None of them
expressed any concern to us of any
violence, danger, whatever. I think
that gives you a view of the entire
world of mental illness. :03

One expert said today, there is no

But of course the actions and the

"The fact of the matter is, we already

The manifesto that was mailed to NBC

that Joh went to the Blacksburg post
office during the 2 hour gap between

that 23-year-old gunman was filled with
pent up hate and anger.

have been made public especially at a
time when emotions are still raw.

shot..the teacher went down too.

32;23...he wasn't erratic or anything
with his shots...he was totally
deliberate....

05;19...he had this face. It was total
concentration of what he was doing. He
had a purpose in mind and the purpose
was taking lives. And he just kept
shooting.....and he loaded a clip...and
reloaded in that room.

HE DOVE TO THE FLOOR.....IN ALL HE
THINKS CHO WAS IN THE ROOM MAYBE THIRTY
SECONDS....THEN LEFT. SEVERAL STUDENTS
WHO WEREN'T SHOT RUSHED TO THE DOOR TO
CLOSE IT.

06;54....i really had a bad feeling he
was gonna come back and try to finish

what he started. And sure enough he did
try to. He tried to force that door
open but, those three just stayed
persistent, kept it closed, kept it
closed although it got open
about....that much so I could see his
face.

(Narr)...CHO MOVED ON. AND EVANS LIFE
WAS SPARED THANKS TO THE RAVERY OF HIS
CLASSMATES.

thankful for them. And they certainly
saved my life.

WERE BATTLING BEFORE HIS EYES....

felt both spirits at the same time. And
god spared my life.

(Narr)......EVANS BEARS NO MALICE FOR
CHO... IN FACT, HE FEELS SORRY FOR HIM.

17;41...i wish I had a chance to meet
him before this happened so that i'd
have had a chance to reach out to him.

crazy....

out to him...none of this would have
happened.

HE FEELS IS FOR THE FAMILIES WHO LOST
LOVED ONES.....THIS FROM A MAN WITH A

BASIC CLASSROOMS ARE FITTED WITH
CHALKBOARDS AND SIMPLE NO-FRILLS DESKS.
AND TO A GUNMAN INTENT ON KILLINGTHERE
IS A CLEAR ADVANTAGE. He just stepped
within five feet of the door and just

HE SENT TO NBC, STEPPED INSIDE A GERMAN
CLASS AND OPENED FIRE HE BLOCKED THE
ONLY ENTRANCE TO THE ROOM. STUDENTS HAD
NO TIME TO REACT NO WHERE TO HIDE. He
came into our classroom and shot

someone almost instantly. At that point
he shot multiple people a lot in the
front row and lots of us panicked and
went under our desks and tried to take
cover. WHEN HE STEPPED OUT OF THE FIRST
CLASSROOM CHO WAS ONLY ABOUT TEN STEPS
AWAY FROM ANY OF FIVE OTHER DOORS. HE
MOVED FREELY IN THE HALLWAY WITH A
CLEAR SHOT AT ANYONE WHO COULD HAVE
TRIED TO ESCAPE. CARRYING THE TWO
PISTOLS HE POSED WITH IN THIS PHOTO..IF
CHO WAS LOOKING FOR A PLACE ON CAMPUS
WHERE HE COULD TRAP ENTIRE ROOMS OF
POTENTIAL VICTIMSHE FOUND IT. The
killer could pick any classroom HE
wantedpeople familiar with that hallway
tell us the doors are solid wood.so the
students couldn't look outside to see
what was going on or see where Cho was
going next. To make the situation even
worsethe doors had no locks. THAT LEFT
ONLY TWO OPTIONS FOR SURVIVAL: ZACK
PETKEWICZ AND A CLASSMATE GRABBED A
TABLE AND BLOCKED THE DOOR TO THEIR
CLASSROOM. CHO COULDN'T GET IN EVEN
WHEN HE FIRED ROUNDS THROUGH THE DOORS.
You know, we were just trying to hold
that table against that door. And
thankfully we weren't in front of it

when he did shoot through it. THE LAST
HOPE FOR SOME WAS TO JUMP THROUGH THE
BUILDING'S SMALL WINDOWS NOT BUILT TO
ACCOMMODATE A MASS ESCAPE..AND NO EASY
FEAT TO SQUEEZE THROUGH. NOT TO MENTION
THE SHEER DROP FROM THE SECOND FLOORAN
EASY CHOICE FOR SOME WHEN IT SEEMED
