"I'm just going through a lot of emotion because it's too -- way too much killing going on and I'm just glad that they alert us in enough time so we wouldn't be outside when everything was occurring. So I'm happy about that but I'm still shaken because it's just entirely too much killing going on."

"We heard shooting, we heard shooting but we didn't think it was that close -- that close like in proximity of the building. So I just thank God that they were able to alert us in time because if it had been ten minutes more we all would have been outside. So that's what I'm grateful for today." I was inside of my office when I heard we heard shooting."

"They they told us all clear. You're perfectly safe to leave. The shooter has been apprehended. I'm sure they couldn't give us any more than that but that was enough to make me feel safe enough to come outside and to know that God was with us and is with us."
