Similar to the active attacker drills they had practiced, Page saw her teacher rush in and shut the door, then students pushed desks against her, she told CNN's Anderson Cooper.

"We grabbed calculators, we grabbed scissors in case the shooter got in and we had to attack them," he said, describing how a bullet went through one of the desks they had used to block the door.
