Virginia: Virginia Tech Massacre
Killed: 32 + Self; Injured: 25
In the deadliest shooting rampage in American history, Virginia Tech senior Seung-Hui Cho, 23, (pictured), a South Korean national suffering from an anxiety disorder, opened fire first at the University's West Ambler Johnston residence hall, then, two hours later, at Norris Hall. During the break in shooting, Cho visited a post office where he mailed a package to NBC News. The package included photographs of himself, as well as a 1,800-word video manifesto in which he explained his disdain for materialism and his desire to become a martyr. The April 16, 2007, attacks, which garnered international attention, ended with Cho's suicide.
