7. Seung-Hui Cho – Virginia Tech Shooter
The shooting at Virginia Tech, otherwise known as Virginia Tech Massacre, was an event where a Virginia Tech senior by the name of Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people and wounded 17 others. The total estimated amount of deaths that occurred on this day is approximately 33, with 23 other non fatal injuries including the 17 aforementioned. I remember the day this had happened because I was sitting in high school when I heard a fellow classmate talking about it.
I wasn’t entirely sure what to believe at the time, but it ended up being a fact and in the classroom at the time, we all just went quiet and tried to put into thought what had actually happened. This incident happened back in 2007 and because of this, Seung-Hui Cho committed suicide via gunshot to self after the police found his location. Since then, the Virginia Tech Massacre has brought up gun violence and gun laws across many different platforms.
