Erin Sheehan was one of four people able to walk out of her 9:05 German class in room 207 Norris Hall.|
"It's a small class, about 25 people," she said. "And I would say no more than 2 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," Sheehan said.
"It seemed so strange," Sheehan said. "Because he peaked 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."
"He was just a normal looking kid, Asian, but he had on a Boy Scout type outfit. He wore a tan button up vest, and this black vest, maybe it was for ammo or something."
"I saw bullets hit people's body," 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." She described.
"My professor, Herr Bishop," Sheehan said, "I'm not sure if he's alive."
Philip Kai Seward, who started a Facebook group back in August about the William Morva incident described his closeness to the events of today.
"I started phoning around to some of my friends," Seward said, "And eventually I got in touch with Erin."
"She told me she was one of just a few people to make it alive out of a class room that got attacked."
"I picked her up from the Blacksburg Police Department just a while ago, but when she first told me what had happened I thought it was all a bad joke," Seward said.
"It was all just a surreal moment," Seward said. "When I realized it wasn't."
