A US shooting rampage at the Virginia Tech university has left 33 people, including a suspected gunman, dead.

There were two incidents two hours apart, at a student dorm where two were killed and at an engineering building where 30 and the gunman died.

After the deadliest shooting rampage in US history, President George W Bush said the US was "shocked and saddened"

The shooter, Cho Seung-hui, is a 23-year-old South Korean.

Cho was studying English and had been living on the university campus. He killed himself after the rampage.

He is also thought to have killed two people earlier in the day. It was the worst gun massacre in US history.

The state university in the town of Blacksburg is home to 26,000 students.
