The shots, which are reported to have come from Strozier Library, started shortly before 1 a.m. ET, three freshmen who were in the DeGraff Hall dormitory at the time said.
They began getting reports from friends locked down in the library, they said.
"We know there are definitely people who saw the shooter," said Anthony Coons.
His friend Max Martin described the surreal scene. "You hear all these stories on the news then it happens," Martin said. "This is something you never want to happen."
