Investigations are continuing into the worst gun massacre in modern American history, which took place at Virginia Tech university in Blacksburg.
Police have named 23-year-old Cho Seung-hui from South Korea, a student at the university, as the man who killed at least 30 people.
It has also emerged that he sent a package containing photographs, video and writings to the US TV network NBC on the day of the massacre.
The shootings took place at two separate locations two hours apart. The first happened at a university hall of residence and another in a block of classrooms.
In the first shooting two people were shot in a dormitory in the grounds of the university at around 7:15am on the morning of Monday 16th April.
The second shooting happened two hours later when 31 people died including the suspected gunman at the Norris Hall campus.
Fifteen people were also injured trying to escape, some jumped out of windows to get away.
Thousands attended a candlelit vigil the day after the shootings on the university drill field which was also attended by U.S. President George Bush.
