Pain, grief, questions in NY shootings aftermath

BINGHAMTON, New York - The sister of the man who killed 13 people and took his own life at an immigrant center was depressed about losing his job at a vacuum manufacturer and very frustrated with his poor English skills, his sister said Monday.

In an interview on NBC's "Today" show, Jiverly Wong's sister said she had "occasional communications" with him but they hadn't lived in the same house together for 20 years. The woman, whose name wasn't given during the interview, said her younger sibling kept his feelings to himself.

Many students at Southeast Bulloch High School belong to a specific club or organization. Most gather together before the bell rings, and are easily identifiable by their group jacket or shirt.
