In Memoriam: Victim Profiles

(CBS) -- A gunman massacred 32 people at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history Monday, April 16, 2007, gunning down victims in two attacks two hours apart before turning a gun on himself and committing suicide.

"Today the university was struck with a tragedy that we consider of monumental proportions," Virginia Tech President Charles Steger said. Two people died in a dorm room, and 31 others were killed across campus in Norris Hall, including the gunman.

"This is a day of mourning for the Virginia Tech community and it is a day of sadness for our entire nation," President Bush said at a convocation held on campus the day after the shootings. "In this time of anguish, I hope you know that people all over this country are thinking about you and asking God to provide comfort for all who have been affected."

Thousands attended a convocation for the students and faculty members killed in the rampage, with thousands more, unable to fit into the auditorium, filling the school's football stadium.

Thoughts and prayers from those on campus and around the world continue as we remember those who lost their lives.
