CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. — Attorneys for the families of two Virginia Tech students killed in a campus rampage are dissecting the minutes and hours of the morning of April 16, 2007, when a lone gunman killed 32 on the Blacksburg campus.
Virginia Tech officials are expected to return to a courtroom in Christiansburg on Thursday to testify in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of two students killed nearly five years ago.
During testimony Wednesday, university officials defended their actions, including a delay in alerting the campus to the shooting of two students in a dorm.
Less than three hours later, Seung-Hui Cho fatally gunned down 30 students and professors in Norris Hall, a classroom building. He then killed himself.
The parents have said they want a full accounting of that day.
