Library Books Save Florida State Student’s Life During Deadly Shooting: “God Intervened”

It was a normal Wednesday night for Florida State Student Jason Derfuss. That is until he unknowingly became one of the first people targeted by a gunman.

Derfuss’ life was spared. The bullet that should have claimed his life was stopped by books that Derfuss had checked out just moments before he was hit. Amazingly, Derfuss says he didn’t realize that he was being targeted–not to mention hit by a bullet–until after he had heard that there was a shooting at Strozier Library.

Here is what Derfuss shared with the world via his Facebook page:

It wasn’t long before students began posted pictures and videos of the shooting from inside the library.
