BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech's president says an Asian university student killed 30 people in a campus building before turning the gun on himself.
And though Charles Steger did not explicitly say the student was also the gunman in the first shooting, he told CNN that he did not believe there was another shooter.
The gunman struck down two people at a dormitory before the other shootings.
Steger also says the shooter lived in one of the dormitories on campus.
Steger also defended the delay in warning students about the gunman. By the time students started receiving e-mail alerts, the second shooting had begun.
Steger says the university was trying to notify students who were already on campus, not those who were commuting in. He says he thought the best way to keep students safe was to confine them to their classrooms.
