There has been a shooting on the campus of Florida State University. It happened just after midnight at the Strozier Library. Three people were injured, one critically. The gunman has been killed. All of the students in our campus ministry at Capital City Church of Christ and at Crossway Church have been contacted and all are fine. Please keep the victims, their families and the students of FSU in your prayers.
Jason Derfuss, a brother in our campus ministry, was in the library during the shooting. He posted this last night on his Facebook page: Earlier tonight there was a shooting at FSU, right as I was leaving Strozier. I didn’t know this at the time, but the shooter targeted me first. The shot I heard behind me I did not feel, nor did it hit me at all. He was about five feet from me, but he hit my books. Books one minute earlier I had checked out of the library, books that should not have stopped the bullet. But they did. I learned this about 3 hours after it happened, I never thought to check my bag. I assumed I wasn’t a target, I assumed I was fine. The truth is I was almost killed tonight and God intervened. I know conceptually He can do all things, but to physically witness the impossible and to be surrounded by such grace is indescribable. To God be the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
