I have included links to the MySpace pages of some of the victims. CNN has more pictures and short bios of a few of the victims.

Emily Hilscher was apparently the first person shot. She was not killed instantly, but died a short time later. It is presumed that she was either the girlfriend of the shooter OR a love-interest of his.
