University police have confirmed the identity of the gunman in yesterday's killing spree in Blacksburg. His name is Cho Seung-Hui. NPR is using Seung-Hui Cho. (South Korean convention sometimes call sof the last name to be used first.) He is a registered alien of South Korean nationality. He was born January 18, 1984.

The police chief also said that victims were found in four different classrooms and in stairwells in Norris Hall. Ballistic experts also said that the gun used in the shootings at West Johnson Amber Hall early Monday morning is the same gun used later in the shootings in Norris Hall. Police said they could not yet confirm it was the same shooter in both incidents.
