    Professor Faked His Death During 7-Hour Shooting Rampage

    Cleveland Sergeant Also Testifies

    CLEVELAND -- There was key testimony Friday in the trial of Biswanath Halder, who is facing charges in connection with a seven-hour shooting rampage in which one person died and two others were injured, NewsChannel5 reported. Halder faces the death penalty if he is convicted of aggravated murder.

    Health care economics professor Avi Dor, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, testified Friday. He said he faked his own death to save his life when he realized a gunman was approaching him in a hallway at the business school of Case Western Reserve University.

    Susan Helper, an economics professor, also testified that she initially thought the gunman was a bicycle messenger. She realized she was wrong and that the man wearing the Army helmet and flak jacket standing a few feet from her was "probably the scariest thing I've ever seen."

    Helper was one of the two surviving victims shot on May 9, 2003, in which a third victim, student Norman Wallace, died.

    "I saw him raising the gun to shoot me, I imagined, and I started to shut the door," Helper testified. About the same time, she heard and felt a blast -- the crack of a gun and a thump on her chest as she had been shot.
