Virginia Tech's president is defending his actions during the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
President Charles Steger testified Friday at a wrongful death trial brought by the families of two students killed during the April 16, 2007, campus attack. Thirty-three people, including the gunman, died. Steger defended his actions during the mass shooting saying "I tried my best."
The civil suit claims university officials delayed warning the campus of the initial two shootings at a dormitory and then attempted to cover up their missteps.
Asked by an attorney for the parents if he erred by not alerting the campus to the earlier shootings, Steger disagreed. He said officials did the best they could with the information they had that day.
