SEATTLE — Police have released the audio recordings of several calls to 911 as the shooting at Seattle Pacific University unfolded Thursday.

In one call begins by identifying themselves to an emergency operator.

“I’m a student at Seattle Pacific University and we’ve heard what sounds like shots being fired”

In another call a couple warns “we just witnessed a shooting on 3rd and Nickerson.”

In still another emergency call, a woman hiding inside a professor’s office whispers “in the lobby, he’s in the lobby”

One of the victims of the shooter can be heard in one reporting calmly telling a 911 operator that he has been hit with ‘birdshot or something.”
