Blacksburg, VA (AP) - The student identified as the Virginia Tech gunman is described as an English major whose professors found
his writing so disturbing, they referred him to the school's counseling service.

The chairwoman of the English Department says the creative-writing teacher described Cho Seung-Hui as ``troubled'' and that ``there was some concern about him.' She says the teacher didn't know if Cho was being creative in his writings or describing real things. And there's more. The Chicago tribune reports that the senior left a note in his dorm room with a rambling list of grievances. In the note, he reportedly railed against ''rich kids,' ''debauchery'' and ''deceitful charlatans'' on campus.

Reports also say he may have been taking medication for depression, and that he was becoming increasingly violent and erratic.
