Miah Cerrillo and her classmates were watching “Lilo and Stitch” in Eva Mireles and Irma Garcia’s classroom when the teachers got word there was a shooter in the building.
One teacher went to lock the door, but Miah told CNN the shooter was right there — and shot out the window in the door. She said the shooter looked at one of her teachers, said, “Goodnight,” and then shot her.
He opened fire, shooting the other teacher and many of Miah’s friends. She said bullets flew by her, and fragments hit her shoulders and head.
After shooting students in her class, Miah said the suspect went through a door into an adjoining classroom.
Miah and a friend managed to grab her dead teacher’s phone and call 911 for help. She told a dispatcher, “Please send help because we’re in trouble.”
She was scared the gunman would return so she dipped her hands in the blood of a classmate — who lay next to her, already dead — and then smeared the blood all over herself to play dead.
Miah said it felt like three hours that she lay there, covered in her classmate’s blood, with her friends until she was rescued.
This happened to an 11-year-old this week in a classroom in America.

"One teacher went to lock the door, but Miah told CNN the shooter was right there — and shot out the window in the door"
Right there - we were trained to keep a piece of construction paper taped inside the door, next to those narrow windows. Once a lockdown is called - you immediately go to the door and COVER that window with the paper.
Now - had the lockdown been called yet? The teacher went to lock the door - but that door should have already been locked. My door was NEVER open.
I am hearing this morning that he was actually in FOUR different classrooms. This is such a mess and it keeps hitting me in waves. Those innocent children and their families will never get past this - they might get through it - but it will stay in their hearts forever.
