A student's shaky cell phone video with the
sound of multiple gunshots has provided the most striking depiction
of the horror at Virginia Tech.
The video shot by Jamal Albarghouti appears unremarkable to the eye, with police officers at the end of
a parking lot standing, guns drawn, outside a campus building. But
the sound of gunfire captured what was going on.
Albarghouti told C-N-N that at first he believed he had come
across the investigation of a bomb threat. There had been several
on campus in recent weeks.
T-V networks rushed to get reporters and anchors to the scene of
what turned into the worst gun massacre in the nation's history.
