Freshman Nikolai Hernandez told the AP that he heard five or six gunshots from his dorm room, which is near a library on campus.

"It was a consecutive bop, bop, bop, bop, bop," Hernandez said. "It makes me definitely a little bit nervous. I was supposed to be in the library. I had a paper to do and I got a little bit lazy and decided not to do it."

University officials sent a campus telephone alert warning students of a "dangerous situation" and urging them to take shelter.
