TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Monday marked the third anniversary of the night a gunman opened fire at Strozier Library on Florida State University's campus.

Myron May shot an FSU student outside of the library and another at the front desk. A third student was shot at, but the bullet lodged in his backpack.

FSU Police Department officers were able to shoot and kill May on the front steps minutes later.

"It hits really close to home when it's somewhere you used to go and study," said FSU alum Jonathan Bonura. "You know, it's scary. It makes it personal."

"I was still an applicant my senior year of high school and I heard about the the shooting and of course it's extremely tragic," said FSU student Lindsay Lurins. "But it didn't sway me from wanting to come to this university."

Ronny Ahmed was shot and paralyzed that night. Ahmed is suing the university, claiming FSU was negligent in providing security at the library. There's no set trial date set in that case.
