“Two people were shot,” said Tod Tamberg.
Just after 10 a.m., the school was placed on lockdown as students were told to shelter in place in an engineering building at the campus. Students were also spotted by a news helicopter being escorted from the school with their hands above their heads as armed police officers scoured the campus looking for the shooter.
“The whole campus just started running and I started running too,” Mehwish Khan, a 21-year-old psychobiology student, told reporters at the scene.
“Everyone was very confused,” she said. “We got in a building, and no one knew what was going on.”
