A survivor of the University of Alabama-Huntsville shooting said the professor charged in the attack methodically shot the victims in the head until her gun apparently jammed and she was pushed out of the room. Associate professor Joseph Ng described the scene, saying that a half an hour into a biology department meeting, Amy Bishop "got up suddenly, took out a gun and started shooting at each one of us. She started with the one closest to her and went down the row shooting her targets in the head."
Ng said the meeting was held around an oval table. The six people on one side were all shot. "The remaining 5 including myself were on the other side of the table and immediately dropped to the floor," he writes in an email to the AP. When the gun jammed, they rushed Bishop out of the room then barricaded the door with a table. "There was a time when I didn't think I'd come out of the room alive," he said. "I don't think any of us thought we'd come out alive." (Read more Amy Bishop stories.)
