This explains a lot – the VTech shooter was not the boyfriend of the first woman student killed. Reports that he was appear to be based on confusion because the police did at first suspect that student’s boyfriend, and were actually in the middle of interviewing him regarding the dorm shooting when the lecture hall shots began. Thus no warning for students either at VTech or at the other college that the boyfriend attended, on the assumption of a limited domestic dispute.
