Cho Seung-Hui, a student from South Korea identified as the gunman who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech University, is seen in this police handout released April 17, 2007.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — The gunman in the deadliest shooting rampage in U.S. history was a loner who wouldn't even speak to his roommate.

Cho Seung-Hui, 23, spent his time barely uttering a word and working on his computer, his Virginia Tech University roommate said in an interview with the Toronto Star today.

"He was always really, really quiet and kind of weird, keeping to himself all the time," said the 19-year-old roommate.

"I tried to make conversation with him and he would just give one-word answers," he added.

Police said today that Seung-Hui, a South Korean citizen studying English who had been a resident of the United States since 1992, killed 32 people Monday with two 9mm handguns recovered at one of the university buildings where the shooting spree took place.

The massacre ended when Seung-Hui took his own life.

A Canadian was among those killed.
