A family member says a Florida State University student shot outside the campus library is paralyzed from the waist down.
Farhana Ahmed, the older sister of Farhan “Ronny” Ahmed, said Monday that her brother had been shot three times and that one of the bullets struck his spine.
Ahmed was one of three people injured in the frantic moments last week when Myron May started shooting outside and just inside the entrance of Strozier Library. Officers fatally shot May during an exchange outside the library.
May reloaded at least once and tried to enter the library, where about 450 students were studying for midterm exams, but was blocked by lobby security barriers that permit only students and staff inside.
Ahmed is a 21-year-old student from Orlando who is studying to be a biomedical engineer.
