Mehwish Khan, a 21-year-old psychobiology student, took cover in the library along with several other students.
“The whole campus just started running and I started running too,” she told a reporter over her cell phone.
“Everyone was very confused. We got in a building, and no one knew what was going on,” she said.
As she spoke by phone, she started hearing helicopters hovering overhead.
“A lot of people thought it was a joke or a drill,” she said.
