Probably the best article about what happened at Virginia Tech

From the AP via Yahoo. Title link leads to it.

Turns out that "Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old senior majoring in English, arrived in the United States as boy from South Korea in 1992 and was raised in suburban Washington, D.C., officials said.", so he wasn't a recent immigrant, although he wasn't a citizen.

And "News reports also said that he may have been taking medication for depression, that he was becoming increasingly violent and erratic,", "Citing unidentified sources, the Tribune said he had recently shown troubling signs, including setting a fire in a dorm room and stalking some women."

So this wasn't the case of a recent immigrant snapping out of the blue and methodically killing people.
