I'm at St. John's University, on lockdown, with armed students on the loose

One was apprehended and what I've heard so far is that there are atleast two more and there is a possibe hostage situation. I've been stuck in a classroom, with no professor (he ran away) for about two hours. There's police cars and trucks and helicopters everywhere, but no police officers in this building, which is a bit irritating. You'd think they would have someone in here by now. I'm seated strategically behind a door, though the room offers nothing for use as a weapon should someone barge into the room.

Your thoughts?

Honestly I think I'm much safer in the building, to leave would mean to enter a large open area where the nearest safety is across a field. They supposedly have rifles, which means it's easier for them to pick me off outside compared to if they had pistols. That's hearsay though, I don't know what they have. But, in any case, I'm on the third floor, and I think (hope) I would know if they're in here before they got to the room I am in.

That's what I meant, I'm at the wall and if someone tried to open it I could slam against it real quick, doesn't help that I'm on the computer though. Oh well, I'll die browsing UG...

Actually i would think it'd be on CNN or something.

Anyways stay indoors, chances are the police might think your one of them and shoot you too.

What's in the room exactly? I'm sure you could improvise a weapon... Probably not the best thing to use first, but it's handy to have one if it comes down to it. Just keep calm. If you panic, things will probably get worse.
#22
There's like 15 other people in the room, some are looking really scared, a girl is crying, some are talking about VT (which is really insensitive) and then me and a couple others are on our laptops like nothing is happening.

That'll help you, being cool, calm and collected. Just don't let no fucker in the room! Keep posting.

At approximately 3 p.m. EST, a male with a rifle in a bag was apprehended on St. John’s University’s Queens Campus. University Public Safety officers quickly disarmed the suspect and have turned him over to the NYPD. No injuries have occurred as a result of this incident.

At this time, the NYPD has a heavy presence on the Queens campus and are conducting an extensive and thorough search of all buildings and facilities. Students have been instructed to stay inside their classrooms and buildings until further notice.

All St. John’s classes on the Queens campus are cancelled for this evening.

Additional information will be forthcoming as it becomes available.

Is that it?

If anyone hears anything new let me know cause I''m kind of cut off, I don't have a tv.\

There's a cupboard I would hide in if I heard gunshots but it's locked, and I can't get into it.

The desks are crappy plastic things that wouldn't work even if I broke a leg off, it'd be like using a coat hanger.

The only thing I can see is a crucifix that I could grab off a wall, but I'll sit tight until I hear gunshots.

Man I thought yakult would be the first one to die browsing UG...

Good luck with not getting killed!

I suggest using reverse psychology followed by the chewbacca defense if someone breaks opens the door and asks why you shouldn't die like the rest of the pigs.

Don't do anyting stupid that could get you or anyone else killed. If someone armed does come in the room, don't scare him.

Good luck xxx

You should start reassuring people. Even if you aren't sure, tell them that everything will be fine. Give the girl that's crying a hug and tell her it'll be okay. Then, try getting a message to the police so they can send someone in to get you all out.

A monitor over the head helps. Just try to make sure everyone in the room is making as little noise as possible, and that they stay out of sight from someone just walking by the room. In all likelihood, these people aren't looking for hostages or just random people to kill at this point. If they cops are about and such, they probably just wanna get the **** out of there. So stay out of their sight and hearing.
