No. Only the one's I mentioned earlier. The two I saw in front of the Cafe I assume are dead. I bet there were 200+ shots fired so far.

They are working at extracating folks. They got 5 people out of admissions. Do you have any clue where he is at

Subject: RE: who else is here?

No. I saw him two times...both times on the walkway. If he got into 201 or 202 he can hide in the rafters or other places.

Dan and I think he killed himself. There as a single shot from what sounded like his gun about 6 or so. Only SWAT team firing since. I'm guessing of course.

I hope they get to our floor soon.

Hang tight....they just got Jagdip out they're working their way up. Any places we won't know about that he could hide in that are not easily identifiable?

In 501 right below the projector behind the back row is a trap door that leads under the chairs for cableing. Above 201 and 202 in the rafters. In the storage area on the lower level.

This is what I've been sending to Jill.

Didn't look like it. I'd say former military. Black or dark skinned, about 5'8 170. He had on a flack jacker, helmet and was either carrying a AK47 or M16. I believe he had set to full automatic for most of his shots. It looked like he had quite a few magazines on his vest.
