To the other side of the world, a campus gun-shooting has rocked the United States. An unidentified gunman killed a university police before he killed himself.

It took place in Virginia Tech, the site of the worst US campus shooting that took away 33 lives four years ago. CCTV US correspondent Wang Guan traveled to the university and got hold of eye-witnesses to the incident.

The incident brought to mind the April 2007 massacre, when a student killed 32 people and wounded 25 others before committing suicide on the school’s rural campus.

It was the worst school shooting in US history.
