Web Exclusive: interview with UAH shooting survivor

By Kim Essex - bio | email

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - One of the survivors from that tragic day is talking about what happened inside that room.

At one point, this victim was actually staring down the barrel of the gun.

Less than a week after the horrendous shooting,  Dr. Debra Moriarity is back at work and recalling the shooting that left three of her beloved faculty members dead and two fighting for their lives.

She said it was towards the end of the faculty meeting Friday.

She looked down for a moment and looked up to see Amy Bishop Anderson firing at faculty members.

"I dropped down under the table we got down and I crawled across the table and grabbed at Amy's legs and she sorta shook her leg free from me and I started yelling at her Amy don't do this. Think about my grandson, think about my daughter . You know me. I helped you I'll help you again. Amy don't do this."

She she said Amy Bishop Anderson said nothing as she pointed the gun in her direction, but the gun did not fire.
