How the Shooting in Dallas Turned a College Into a Crime Scene

When shots rang out inside El Centro College’s downtown Dallas campus shortly after 9 p.m. on Thursday, the 58 students and employees working there late had no way of knowing just how close the gunman was.

It wasn’t until 9:36 p.m. that students said they had received their first alert from the college warning them to take cover.

By then some of them had, in their confusion and panic, taken the elevator downstairs, narrowly missing Micah Xavier Johnson as he shot his way into the building, wounding two college police officers.
