Poignant tales have emerged on the Oikos University shooting in which seven nursing students died. One of the victims told the Daily Mail that the gunman stood up in the middle of the class and shot another student point blank in the chest before spraying the room with bullets. According to AP, a wounded woman cowered in the bushes after the man opened fire on the campus while a student hid himself in a locked classroom as the shooter banged on the door.

It was an "extremely chaotic scene," police Chief Howard Jordan said, reported AP adding: "It's going to take us a few days to put the pieces together," Jordan said. "We do not have a motive."
