Sneed hears authorities were investigating whether the gunman who killed 32 people in a rampage on the Virginia Tech campus was a Chinese national who arrived in the United States last year on a student visa.
The 25-year-old man being investigated for the deadliest college carnage in U.S. history reportedly arrived in San Francisco on a United Airlines flight on Aug. 7, 2006, on a visa issued in Shanghai, the source said. Investigators had not linked him to any terrorist groups, the source added.
The shooter reportedly had multiple handguns with high-capacity magazines, enabling him to kill many students quickly.
The rampage also appeared to have been premeditated since the exits in the campus buildings in which the shootings occurred were chained.

"Suspected gunman identified
April 16, 2007
BY MICHAEL SNEED Sun-Times Columnist
The gunman suspected of carrying out the Virginia Tech massacre that left 33 people dead was identified today as Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old South Korean who was a senior at the school.
He was carrying a backpack that contained 9mm clips, two knives and a bag from Dick's Sporting Goods, a source said. The backpack was found near the shooter.
The initial investigation had led law enforcement authorities to a preliminary suspect who was a Chinese national, accompanied by details and a description. The man was placed on the suspect list before fingerprints could be verified. The list in turn was distributed to law enforcement officials via a national network in place to check on possible terrorism in the United States.
Cho was identified following an analysis of fingerprints and ballistics.
Cho was a English major whose creative writing was so disturbing that he was referred to the school’s counseling service.
News reports also said he may have been taking medication for depression.
Also note that eyewitnesses who survived the slaughter said the gunman was a 6-foot Asian man. Yet the patsy Cho was 5-foot-8, 150 pounds. It is likely that the six-foot Asian gunman was indeed this Chinese man.
Independent investigators in Blacksburg should try to find out who this mysterious might have been -- was there anyone fitting this description in Blacksburg over the last several who may have had access to the campus? An employee of the University perhaps?
Disturbingly, this information implies that the Chinese Communists in the People's Liberation Army are actively working with elements of the American military-intelligence complex in conducting murderous operations on American soil.
