At least two people were injured by gunshots on Florida State University’s campus in Tallahassee early this morning, officials with Tallahassee Memorial Health Care confirmed to ABC News.
The patients’ conditions are not known, and it’s unclear whether those injured are students.
The university sent emergency alerts to students, classifying the incident as a “dangerous situation” and telling students to seek shelter.
Police have not released additional details on the incident.
Student Toni Haywood, a junior, says she was on the second floor of the Strozier Library at about 12:30 a.m., when she says she heard gunshots.
Minutes later, people on the first floor ran upstairs, telling students to hide, Haywood said.
“The police came on the intercom and said that there was a gunman in the lobby, and I think he said two people had been shot,” Haywood told ABC News in a text message. “He said to stay away from doors and windows and to stay where we were. We all waited then the police came back on and said the gunman was in custody and to stay where we were.”
Haywood and other students remained hunkered down an hour later, waiting as police cleared the floors of the library.
An Instagram post geo-tagged to the school’s location warned of a gunmen and urged students to “please call the police.”
That same user later posted audio appearing to capture officers instructing students to exit the library with their hands up.
