What Happened in Room 207 Norris Hall

One of the survivors of Monday's attacks on the campus of Virginia Tech gave the Collegiate Times a chilling account of what she witnessed in that German course. "It's a small class, about 25 people," she said. "And I would say no more than two people didn't show up, were absent. And of those of us that were in there today, only four of us walked out of that room, but two of us had been injured during the shooting."

"It seemed so strange," the student tells the Times. "Because he peeked in twice, earlier in the lesson, like he was looking for someone, somebody, before he started shooting. But then we all heard something like drilling in the walls, and someone thought they sounded like bullets. That's when we blockaded the door to stop anyone from coming in."

The student also described for the Times the actual violence she witnessed. "I saw bullets hit people's bodies," Sheehan said. "There was blood everywhere. People in the class were passed out, I don't know maybe from shock from the pain. But I was one of only four that made it out of that classroom. The rest were dead or injured."--Kenneth Terrell
