The Shooting Only Lasted 6 Minutes But David Hogg Claims to have Biked from his Home in Time to Hide in a Closet and Interview Classmates During the Shooting

No one is going to suddenly hear about a shooting, bike three miles, enter a school on lock-down, hide in a closet, and have time to interview fellow students… in a six minute interval. So what’s up?

“On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and rode as fast as I could, 3 miles from my house to the schoool, to get as many interviews as I could….”

(CNN)David Hogg found himself living a nightmare on Wednesday, hiding in a closet with classmates as a crazed gunman roamed the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, unleashing a torrent of bullets on students and teachers.

Huddled in the dark, trying to keep quiet to avoid the gunman, students called their parents to tell them in hushed voices that they loved them.
“That’s kind of around the same time that I just had to pull out my phone,” Hogg, a 17-year-old student journalist, told CNN in a phone interview Friday.
