FSU Student Jason Derfuss Says These Bullet-Riddled Books Saved His Life During The Shooting — PHOTOS
On early Thursday morning, a gunman stormed Florida State University's Strozier Library and wounded three students before being killed in a shoot-out with campus police. Humanities student Jason Derfuss was in the FSU library at the time, but didn't realize he'd been shot until hours later when he discovered bullet holes ripped through the books in his backpack (The Oxford Context of Wyclif’s Thought, if you wondered) and realized he'd been shot at by the gunman, identified by the Associated Press as FSU graduate Myron May.
Not long afterward, 21-year-old Derfuss posted photos on Facebook of the books riddled with bullet holes. He wrote:
Two of the victims remain in hospital, and a third was released at the scene. One of the students is described as being in critical condition.
Few details have been released about the shooter's identity, although cops have described the shooting as an "isolated incident." At a press conference, FSU Police Chief David Perry said: "This person just, for whatever reason, produced a handgun and then began shooting students in the library."
