Shooting in New Orleans


So what happened and why?

From CNN:

Abdul Aziz believes he was standing right next to a shooter Sunday when gunmen opened fire at a Mother’s Day parade in New Orleans, injuring 19 people.

“Everyone around me, except me, was shot,” he said. “I was pretty fortunate to get away.”

Aziz, 33, a photojournalist, was at the second-line parade when gunfire broke out at the corner of Frenchman Street and North Villere Street.

Second-line parades, which involve dancing and brass bands, are a New Orleans tradition. They happen most every Sunday, except during the hottest months in summer, according to Aziz. (more…)

NBC received package from shooter

Cho was clearly confused. At one point during the rant he compares himself to Jesus Christ. He also mentions the Columbine killers.

Addendum: Video updated.  (I had the same video as in the previous post.  Oooppss.)

Shooter sends video, audio and photos to NBC

These ramblings sure seem to indicate someone who is/was psychotic.  Paranoid.  Paranoid delusions.  They are after him.  They have “backed” him into a corner.


Sometime after he killed two people in a Virginia university dormitory but before he slaughtered 30 more in a classroom building, Cho Seung-Hui mailed NBC News a large package including photographs and videos Monday morning, boasting, “When the time came, I did it. I had to.”

Cho, 23, a senior English major at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, killed 32 people in two attacks before taking his own life. (more…)

From WaPo:

On the network’s “Nightly News” broadcast, anchor Brian Williams said the package was sent Monday via overnight mail, but didn’t arrive at NBC’s office until today because it had an incorrect Zip Code. Williams said a mail clerk received the package at 9:01 a.m., which was nearly two hours after campus police received a 7:15 a.m. call about at shooting at West Ambler Johnston dormitory. The second shooting at Norris Hall, an academic building across campus, was reported to police about 9:45 a.m.

The news network said it had turned the original package over to authorities. The video was said to include profane, often unintelligible rantings, and mentions of Cho’s anger at rich students. The network, in an earlier broadcast, showed photos of Cho posing with a pair of black pistols in his outstretched hands, with a hammer, and with a pistol pointed at the camera. (more…)
