kenya universityThe gunshots started going off “like fireworks” at Garissa University College around 5 a.m., at the time of morning prayers, witness Milka Ndung’u told NTV. She and others escaped to a field, but gunshots followed them, so they continued fleeing.

Augustine Alanga told CNN he woke up to the sound of gunfire and described students running around the dormitories seeking shelter.

It’s not clear how many gunmen were on campus.

“We don’t know how many there were, but there are probably more than 10,” said Robert Alai Onyango, a blogger in Nairobi. “We believe the attackers were wearing something close to military fatigues.”

Onyango said the gunmen appeared to be shooting indiscriminately and “basically from all angles.”
