SHOTLIST

1. STILL of Cho Seung-hui, identified by police as the man who carried out the shootings at Virginia Tech

STORYLINE:

A fourth-year student from South Korea was behind the massacre of at least 30 people locked inside a Virginia Tech campus building in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history, the university said Tuesday.

Ballistics tests also found that one of the guns used in that attack was also used in a shooting two hours earlier at a dorm that left two people

dead, Virginia State Police said.

Police identified the shooter as Cho Seung-hui, 23, a senior in the university's English department who lived on campus.

South Korea's Foreign Ministry expressed its condolences on Tuesday to victims after it emerged that the suspect in the shootings was of South Korean origin.

Earlier, South Korea's Yonhap news agency said the suspect had gone to live in the United States while in primary school and had permanent residency there while maintaining his South Korean citizenship, citing an unnamed official.

Cho committed suicide after the attacks, and there was no indication Tuesday of any possible motive.

Two law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because the information had not been announced, said Cho's fingerprints were found on the guns used in the shootings.

The serial numbers on the two weapons had been filed off, the officials said.

One law enforcement official said Cho was carrying a backpack that contained receipts for a March purchase of a Glock 9 mm pistol.

Col. Steve Flaherty, superintendent of the Virginia State Police, said it was reasonable to assume that Cho was the shooter in both attacks but that

link was yet definitive.

The first deadly attack, at a dormitory around 7:15 a.m., left two people dead. But some students said they did not get their first warning about a

danger on campus until two hours later, in an e-mail at 9:26 a.m. By then the second attack had begun.

Police were still investigating around 9:15 a.m., when a gunman wielding two handguns and carrying multiple clips of ammunition stormed Norris Hall, a classroom building a half-mile away on the other side of the 2,600-acre (1,052-hectares) campus.

The slayings left people of this once-peaceful mountain town and the university at its heart praying for the victims and struggling to find order

in a tragedy of such unspeakable horror it defies reason.

STORYLINE:

The family of the gunman in the Virginia Tech shootings had struggled while living in South Korea and emigrated to the US to seek a better life, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The shooter at Virginia Tech University was identified as Cho Seung-Hui, a senior in the English department, who the South Korean Foreign Ministry said had been living in the United States since 1992.

Cho was the only suspect named in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern US history, which left 33 dead including himself.

South Korea's largest newspaper "Chosun Ilbo" reported that Cho's family was poor when they lived in a Seoul suburb and decided to emigrate to seek a better life.

The family lived in a rented, basement apartment, usually the cheapest unit in a multi-apartment building, the newspaper reported quoting building owner 67-year-old Lim Bong-ae.

Police identified the shooter's father as 61-year-old Cho Seong-tae.

Meanwhile, South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun held a special meeting with aides Wednesday to discuss the shooting, as the public expressed shame over a South Korean citizen being identified as the gunman.

It was the third time that Roh has offered condolences since Tuesday.

The case topped the front pages of nearly all South Korean newspapers on Wednesday, which also voiced worries that the incident may trigger racial hatred in the US and worsen relations between the strong allies.

A sense of despair prevailed among South Korean public.

Lee Jin-eui, the parent of a child at the school Cho used to attend expressed her own worries about the impact of the shooting on Koreans.

"I am worried that people will look down on Korea because of this one isolated case," she said.

"People look down on Koreans as it is. I am afraid that we will be restricted in terms of what we can and cannot do when we go abroad from now on," Lee added.

Despite being technically a state of war for decades against North Korea, South Korea is a country where citizens are banned from privately owning guns, and where no school shootings are known to have occurred.

However, it has not been immune from shooting rampages.

In 2005, a military conscript believed to be angered by taunts from senior officers killed eight fellow soldiers, throwing a grenade into a barracks where his comrades were sleeping and firing a hail of bullets.

STORYLINE:

A 17-year-old gunman dressed in black opened fire at his former high school in southwestern Germany on Wednesday then fled in a hijacked a car, killing at least 15 people before police shot him dead, state officials said.

The teenager killed nine students, three teachers, and a passer-by outside Albertville high school in Winnenden, authorities said.

Triggering a land and air manhunt, he hijacked a car, let the passengers go and drove about 25 miles (40 kilometres) before police found him.

When confronted, he killed two bystanders in a shootout with police before he was

slain, Baden Wuerttemburg governor Guenther Oettinger said.

Two officers were seriously injured, but there was no immediate information on other

casualties.

Police have not yet identified the gunman.

It was the nation's worst shooting since another teenage gunman killed 16 people and himself in another high school in 2002.

Hundreds of mourners turned out in Denver for a memorial service on Wednesday night for those killed in the school shooting in nearby Littleton.

Denver Mayor Wellington Webb told the crowd that he had no "magic answers" to stopping youth violence.

Several hundred students from around the Denver area gathered at a park near the Columbine High School on Wednesday, many with their parents.

Bouquets, balloons and condolence cards were scattered around the grounds.

Meanwhile the police said they believed that Eric Harris, who just turned 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, were alone when they walked into the suburban high school on Tuesday and shot at students and teachers.

The attack left 15 dead, including the two assailants.

However the Jefferson County Sheriff said the elaborate nature of the plan prompted suspicion that others may have known about it.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"Well we've got a full investigation to do here we've got hundreds of kids who had brief interviews yesterday (Tuesday) we've got to go back an re-interview these kids to see who has seen what - to see who has seen what guns and what peoples hands. We know that these two are probably involved - the ones that are deceased we are uncertain if we've got other members in there. I have concerns because we've had tremendous amount of explosive devices in there, whether two people could carry that all that stuff in there. The other scenario could be that maybe some of that stuff was hidden in the schools.

SUPER CAPTION: Jefferson County Sheriff John P. Stone

District Attorney Dave Thomas outlined to the media what kind of investigation will unfold over the coming weeks.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"The investigation will be ongoing it will be - it will not be completed today (Wednesday) or even tomorrow (Thursday). This will be a, I believe a long and very extensive investigation. I will probably not be able to go into extensive detail about that investigation but it will include any one else who had knowledge or assisted in any way with what transpired at Columbine High School yesterday (Tuesday). There will be extensive interviews - we're in that process right now."

SUPER CAPTION: District Attorney Dave Thomas

On Wednesday evening gospel music filled the air in the Denver area as mourners took part in a vigil for the victims of Tuesday's school shooting.

Some of those who attended the vigil were still uncertain about the fate of friends at Columbine High School.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I had a couple of friends from Columbine and I've heard from all but one. So I have no clue how he's doing if he's alive or not. It's really hard to deal with right now."

SUPER CAPTION: Robert Alba, Student

Others who attended the vigil said more such gatherings needed to be held to help the community cope.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I believe it's taken away a lot of pain kind of helped me out with my overall feelings of the situation. But I think there's still a lot of stuff to be taken care of and I think that the community needs to be more involved in this sort of thing, not just this one get together isn't going to solve everything.

SUPER CAPTION: Ryan Swartz, Student,

Community and religious leaders spoke to the hundreds of mourners.

One speaker said it's time for Americans to say no to hate, violence and guns.

However Denver Mayor Wellington Webb said he has no "magic answers" to stopping violence among young people.

Other speakers said violence is everywhere -- in music, media and movies -- and that's devalued human life in the eyes of young people.

STORYLINE

German police said they thwarted a plot by a pair of teens to attack their school in Cologne, after classmates saw them studying pictures of the Columbine school shooting and alerted their principal.

One of the teens died after throwing himself in front of a tram after being questioned by police officers on Friday, lead investigator Norbert Wagner said on Sunday.

The other teen, an 18-year-old, was arrested by police in Cologne and confessed to the plot, Wagner told reporters at a news conference.

Neither teen was identified. Officers said they believed the pair had planned to storm the school with two crossbows and two air guns that officers discovered during a search of the two suspects' homes.

Police also said they might have intended to use molotov cocktails or pipe bombs.

Wagner said the principal of the Georg-Buechner high school in Cologne contacted authorities on Friday, after classmates had observed the 17-year-old studying an Internet page with pictures of the Columbine massacre.

During a search of their homes police also found a list of names of teachers and students who were possibly to be targeted by the pair, Wagner said.

Wagner said police had found no evidence of a clear motive for the attack, although he noted the 18-year-old was considered a loner by his peers and had been struggling in school.

The 17-year-old, however, did not appear to have any troubles, he said.

The pair appeared to be planning to carry out the attack on the coming Tuesday, the first anniversary of Germany's most recent school shooting, Wagner said.

Last November 20, Sebastian Bosse, 18, opened fire at his former school in Emsdetten before killing himself.

Five people were seriously wounded and dozens injured.

After the shooting, officers found a diary by Bosse in which he also referred to the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, when Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and a teacher, and wounded 23 others.

Earlier this month, an 18-year-old student killed eight people and himself at a school in southern Finland.

He had also referenced the massacre at Columbine.

AP Photo/Pennsylvania State Police Handout - No Access Canada/Internet

1. This undated photo released by the Pennsylvania State Police purportedly shows Charles Carl Roberts IV, the man police say was involved in a schoolhouse shooting in Nickel Mines, Pa.

STORYLINE

A milk-truck driver carrying three guns and a childhood grudge stormed a one-room Amish schoolhouse, sent the boys and adults outside, barricaded the doors with wood planks, and then opened fire on a dozen girls, killing three people before committing suicide.

At least seven other victims were critically wounded, authorities said.

It was America's third deadly school shooting in less than a week, and it sent shock waves through Lancaster County's bucolic Amish country, a picturesque landscape of horse-drawn buggies, green pastures and neat-as-a-pin farms, where violent crime is virtually nonexistent.

Most of the victims had been shot execution-style at point-blank range after being lined up along the chalkboard, their feet bound with wire and plastic ties, authorities said.

Two young students were killed, along with a female teacher's aide who was slightly older than the students, state police Commissioner Jeffrey B. Miller said.

The gunman, who police identified as Charles Carl Roberts IV, a 32-year-old truck driver from the nearby town of Bart, was bent on killing young girls as a way of "acting out in revenge for something that happened 20 years ago" when he was a boy, Miller said.

Miller refused to say what that long-ago hurt was.

Roberts was not Amish and appeared to have nothing against the Amish community, Miller said. Instead, Miller said, he apparently picked the school because it was close by, there were girls there, and it had little or no security.

Miller said investigators were looking into the possibility the attack may have been related to the death of one of Roberts' own children. According to an obituary, Roberts and his wife, Marie, lost a daughter shortly after she was born in 1997.

STORYLINE:

People in the eastern German city of Erfurt have begun mourning the victims of a shooting at a high school on Friday that left 18 people dead, including the 19-year-old gunman.

Candles and flowers were placed outside the Johann Gutenberg Gymnasium school where the shootings happened, and at the city's Cathedral nearby.

Mourners packed a memorial service for the victims at Andreaskirche a few hundred metres (yards) from the school.

Police said the gunman, a former student at the school who was expelled a few weeks ago, sprayed gunfire in the halls of the school, killing two girls, 13 teachers, a school secretary and a policeman who responded to an alert by the school janitor.

The gunman killed himself as special police commandoes stormed the building. Police did not identify the suspected killer, citing the need to shield his family.

Erfurt is a city of about 200-thousand people located in former communist East Germany.

STORYLINE

US President George W Bush on Monday afternoon offered condolences to the families and friends of those killed in a shooting at a Virginia college.

Bush described the shootings as a "terrible tragedy" and said he and his wife were praying for the victims.

"Our nation grieves with those who have lost loved ones at Virginia Tech," said Bush.

A gunman opened fire in a dormitory and a classroom at Virginia Tech on Monday morning, killing at least 32 people, in the deadliest shooting rampage in U.S. history.

The gunman then killed himself, police said, bringing the death toll to 33.

Students and a Virginia Tech employee said the first E-mail warning they got from the university came more than two hours after the first shots were fired - by which time the gunman had struck again.

Fifteen people were in hospital being treated for injuries, said Virginia Tech President Charles Steger.

"Schools should be places of safety, sanctuary and learning," President George W. Bush. "When that sanctuary is violated, the impact is felt in every American classroom in every American community."

Students at Columbine High School returned to classes on Monday for the first time since a deadly shooting last spring.

13 people were killed when two students opened fire on their classmates and teachers.

Returning students say they had mixed feelings about going back to school for the start of the new school year.

UPSOUND"We are back!"

With the cutting of a large blue ribbon, students began filing into Columbine High School.

It's the first day of classes at the school since last spring's massacre.

Wearing white T-shirts saying, "We Are Columbine", they hugged and cheered as the walked through the doors of the building.

As they streamed through, a U-S flag outside was raised from half-staff, where it had been since the shootings last April.

The students were welcomed back with a rally.

Principal Frank DeAngelis told the crowd he was at last keeping a pledge he made in the aftermath of the tragedy.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I have been looking forward to this day for a long time. Last year, you made me make a promise that I would not allow anyone or anything to take our school. Well today, I am fulfilling that promise. You have given me the strength to move forward."

SUPER CAPTION: Frank DeAngelis, Columbine High School Principal

About 400 parents and alumni lined the sidewalk leading to Columbine, creating a human chain.

They said they were there to support the students and protect them from the media.

Students have mixed feeling about going back to the building the fled, many fearing for their lives.

Last April, Columbine High School looked more like a war zone than a high school.

Swat teams evacuated the students, while armoured vehicles set up perimetres and helicopters buzzed overhead.

Two students, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, brought guns and bombs to school.

When their rampage was over, 12 students, and one teacher were dead.

Almost two dozen others were injured.

Klebold and Harris then turned their guns on themselves.

On Monday DeAngelis told students that their school is more than just a tragic reminder.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I want the people in attendance to remember - it is not the building that makes the school, it is the people inside the building that makes the school special."

SUPER CAPTION: Frank DeAngelis, Columbine High School Principal

In an effort to give the school a new feel, Columbine High has been renovated.

Inside the school, bullet and shrapnel holes have been plastered and painted over.

And there is a new wall of lockers blocking the entrance to the library where 10 people died.

Security is also tighter, with armed guards patrolling the school.

Many students appeared excited about the new year.

They cheered enthusiastically at the rally, intent on showing the world that Columbine High and its students are moving beyond the shootings.

But, privately, some are worried about how emotional returning to school will be.

President Clinton addressed the nation on Tuesday evening following a Colorado high school massacre which may have left up to 25 dead.

The President urged the nation to allow grieving families breathing time before all the facts behind the attack are disclosed.

He said the nation's prayers were with the bereaved.

In the meantime, a federal crisis response team will be sent to offer counselling to victims' friends and relatives.

President Bill Clinton on Tuesday deplored the mass slaying of students at a Colorado high school saying the federal government will provide any assistance needed to deal with the tragedy.

As many as 25 persons may have been killed in what police call an apparent "suicide mission".

Two young men opened fire at a Littleton high school which police fear may have left as many as 25 people dead.

Shots bounced off lockers as the gunmen opened fire around 11:30 a.m. MDT (1730 GMT) with what students said were automatic weapons.

One girl was shot nine times in the chest.

The gunmen - both juniors at Columbine High School - were found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wounds, with what appeared to be bombs around their bodies, a sheriff's spokesman said.

A third person was led away in handcuffs.

Several students said the killers - believed to be former students at Columbine High School - were gunning for minorities and athletes.

Since 1997, a series of school shootings have led to calls for tighter security and closer monitoring of troubled students.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"That we only partly understand what is happening, we do know that we must do more to reach out to our children and teach them to express their anger and to resolve their conflicts with words not weapons. And we do know that we must do more to recognize the early warning signs that are said before children act violently.

SUPER CAPTION: U-S President Bill Clinton

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"To the families who have lost their loved ones, to the parents who have lost their beloved children, to the wounded children and their families, to the people of the community of Littleton, I can only say tonight that the prayers of the American people are with you. Thank you very much."
