Redditor Saved by His Books During Shooting at Florida State University – November 20, 2014 – Amazing Story

0

This video was taken by an unidentified Florida State University student inside the school’s Strozier Library during a shooting in the early morning hours of Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014.

Thanks, so no deaths yet at least it seems. Phew.

As reported by the New York Times, during the shooting at Florida State University, the gunman wounded 3 and was then killed by police! Pretty much terrifying!

But something really amazing occurred. As explained by redditor Thejasond123:

I’m a student at FSU, I was leaving Strozier when I heard a shot behind me. I turned around and saw the gunman shoot one person who collapsed. I turned and ran to my car before driving off. There were a ton of people stuck in the library when this happened. I went home so I don’t have any other details.

Edit: I got home and noticed two of my books were destroyed. They stopped the bullet. I was the initial target of the gunman. I’ve posted pictures of the bullet, the books, and my backpack. I’m beyond lucky to not have been injured at all. Thank you all for your support, your comments have comforted me.

Edit 2: Just got home from the station. Gave my statement, the police came by around 3:30 a.m. to collect the evidence. There were a bunch of people shaken up at the station, but it looks like everyone is okay. The worst injured guy is in surgery, and after that, hopefully (s)he’s in the clear. Also, thank you for the gold, kind stranger. 🙂
