Therapists Didn't View Shooter as a Threat, Records Show

The recently discovered health records of the student at Virginia Tech who opened fire two years ago, killing 32 people have been made public. The records show three therapists in three weeks met with the future gunman. He told them he was depressed and had feelings of anxiety, but had no homicidal or suicidal thoughts. A few months later, on April 16, 2007, he killed 32 people and himself in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Families of some victims say the records show the student gunman slipped through cracks in the university's mental health system, though the records don't indicate a severely troubled mental state. The records were discovered last month when the director of the school's counseling center found them in his home. The family of the gunman made the records public yesterday, saying it was the right thing to do.
