“Fortunately for us, our public safety officers and university officials have trained many of us for active shooter situations. Many students are locked-down in classrooms, and professors and staff members are telling them the protocol. Plus, we are all texting and Facebooking each other to make sure we are safe.”- Allan Mitchell, an English professor,in a Facebook message to The Associated Press.
There have been differences in opinion unraveling in light of this shooting. Another English professor, Bill Hays, said the university did a poor job of communicating with faculty, staff and students about the emergency situation.
