A student described the moments during and after the shooting to ABC News.
"It was really loud. Then I heard it again," Michael, a student, told ABC News. "Then I heard frantic screaming. I've never heard such loud screams in my life. Then we realized there was a shooting at my school."
Michael then descibed the moments leaving his classroom after police arrived.
"We moved in a single line, then lying around the wall from my room there were two dead bodies on the ground," he said. "There was a boy and a girl. They were both extremely pale and bleeding."
Footage from inside the school showed both the horrifying moments gunfire erupted in the hallways as well as authorities guiding students to safety, ABC News reported.

Hello, Twitter. I am closing my DM’s but I appreciate everyone contacting me. I am still locked in the school, but remember I’m only a freshman. Please don’t just send your love to me, but pray for the victims’ families too. Love you all.
