Weapons used in VA Tech shooting

Posted: Updated:

Police say they found a nine-millimeter glock and 22-walter semi automatic with the gunman's body at the scene of the Virginia Tech shooting.

Authorities say Cho Seug-Hui, killed at least 30 people inside an engineering building before taking his own life Monday.

The serial numbers on both weapons were filed off.

Ballistics tests show one of the guns was also used to kill two people in a dorm room, but police are not saying if Cho was the triggerman in that incident.

    Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Wednesday, July 18 2018 1:48 PM EDT2018-07-18 17:48:19 GMT

So when they say there is a line around 100 percent of the fire, but 0 percent containment, it means they are concerned that the fire could jump the line.
