' UN-NAMED KILLER KILLS TWO PEOPLE ...THEN KILLS SELF ... THEN 2 HOURS LATER (?) KILLS 30 MORE '
' The un-named killer took his own life after murdering two victims in a hall of residence and then, two hours later, gunned down 30 people in an academic building on the campus of Virginia Tech university.'
PHOTOS OF SHOOTING SUSPECT & HIS ARREST BEFORE HE KILLED HIMSELF
V.T. President in his press conference claims that the Police NEVER FIRED their weapons.
Yet, in the video taken by a student outside as the event was unfolding, you can CLEARLY hear AUTOMATIC Gunfire.
So, if the two weapons used by the scumbag killer were SEMI-AUTOMATIC 9mm and .22 caliber handguns, as is being reported,
where is the AUTOMATIC Gunfire coming from?
The ONLY FULLY AUTOMATIC Handgun is the Glock 18. And it is Banned from private ownership in the US. There are thought to be maybe 2 or 3 Glock 18s in the USA privately owned in accordance with the National Firearms Act.
There is the REMOTE possibility that the scumbag killer had somehow aquired a FULLY AUTOMATIC PISTOL, such as the Cobray M-11/9 9mm Pistol. But, these firearms in their FULLY AUTOMATIC configuaration are very RARE, VERY EXPENSIVE, and must be aquired through a Class III dealer in accordance with the National Firearms Act.
It has not been confirmed whether or not the shooter is a student. [How did the shooter access the buildings, when a scanned ID is required for access?]
First report: The suspect was led away in handcuffs.
Second report: The suspect was killed.
Third report: The suspect killed himself.
Fourth report: There were two suspects.
Individual had same style of guns (*two* handguns) used by FBI agents, a 'high-powered' weapon and the shootings were 'well- planned.'
