GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Nick Vozza is a student here at Virginia Tech. But not only does live in Harper Hall, the same dorm where the shooter, Cho Seung-Hui, lived, but he was coincidentally inside Norris Hall yesterday morning when Cho killed 30 people. A short time ago, Nick went "On the Record."


VAN SUSTEREN: We're headed up the stairs to Norris Hall.


VAN SUSTEREN: Do you have a class there?

VOZZA: No, but did I have a lab there yesterday.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, which building is it from here?

VOZZA: It's that one right there.

VAN SUSTEREN: The old building straight ahead that we're headed towards?

VOZZA: Yes. Well, this is Burruss Hall. Then Norris Hall is right there. And that's where the police are. And as you can see, it's blocked off.

VAN SUSTEREN: Tell me, what time, about, did you realize there was a problem, and what did you hear and see?

VOZZA: Well, what happened is we were doing a lab downstairs, and it was just the three of us. It was basically me, my lab partner and my lab instructor. And what happened is the janitor comes running in, and he's, like, Oh, my God, there's a shooter in the building. Just stay down, stay down. And he basically just runs out. We don't know where he went. But we're just, like, All right. We packed up our stuff and stayed down.

VAN SUSTEREN: Did you believe — did you get the seriousness of it at the time, or did you think that — did you question him in any way?

VOZZA: To tell you truth, I don't know if it was serious because we did have bomb threats before, and they all turned out to be fake. So it was kind of like one of those things, it was, like, Well, is this another prank, you know, the end of the year, you know, seniors trying to pull something off. But then we saw SWAT running, and we were, like, Oh, man, this is really serious.

VAN SUSTEREN: Which door did the SWAT team — did you see the SWAT team go in?

VOZZA: The SWAT team — there's a hallway that goes like that. They basically came in — there's — the lab where we were, the buildings that are to the right of that building are basically offices. And the SWAT came in through there. And then what happened is then they basically — they also came in from the hallway, and they busted down the doors. And they basically told us to get out of there.

VAN SUSTEREN: Did you hear the shooting?

VOZZA: No. We didn't hear anything.

VAN SUSTEREN: Never heard a thing.

VOZZA: Yes. Judging from the events, from what I heard from the news, is I think it happened after we left because what happened, I think the SWAT had an entire (INAUDIBLE) floor barricaded, and that's pretty much the only way out of Norris. So if the shooter was on the second floor, he would have had to go down to the first floor and out of one of the entrances.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right. Now, you refer to the second floor and you also refer to the basement. Looking at the building here, there are three sets of windows. When you talk about the second floor, are you talking about the middle set of windows, and the basement being the, quote, "first floor"?

VOZZA: Yes, it's the middle set of basement. And the second floor is actually — my friend jumped down on the other side of the other — of this little structure thing. And basically, the second floor is the second set of windows. And I'm pretty sure the SWAT had both of the entrances locked down.

VAN SUSTEREN: How do you know your friend jumped out the window? You didn't see (INAUDIBLE)

VOZZA: No, we called him. We started checking to see if everybody was all right. And we called, and he said he was in the hospital with a broken leg because he jumped out of the window.

VAN SUSTEREN: You live in Harper, which is the same dormitory that the killer lived. What kind of dormitory is it? I mean, usually — lots of times, dormitories have certain groups, like science students or a certain — or English or grad students. What's Harper?

VOZZA: Harper is mostly upperclassmen. Sometimes they let freshman in there, and there's only about probably around 10 freshman living in there just because they ran out of space in the other halls. But mostly, it's upperclassmen.

VAN SUSTEREN: How long have you been there?

VOZZA: I've been living in Harper two years.

VAN SUSTEREN: What floor are you on?

VOZZA: I'm on the third floor.

VAN SUSTEREN: What floor was the killer on?

VOZZA: I actually have no idea. There's a lot of people who actually don't know him at all, even though they lived in Harper on the same floor. So my — actually — I've heard rumors that he was on the second floor. I've heard rumors he was on the first floor. I don't know.

VAN SUSTEREN: How big a dorm is it?

VOZZA: It's a pretty big dorm. The thing is, it's a suite dorm, which basically means that there's three rooms to a suite, and the suite door basically opens to the hallway. And a lot of people, they like to keep the stuff in the suites, like they set up a lounge, whether it's with TV or, you know, a video game system. And they lock the doors to prevent people stealing stuff. So a lot of people basically — you don't know who lives in the suite next to you (INAUDIBLE)

VAN SUSTEREN: So you may never — you may have seen him, may never have seen him.


VAN SUSTEREN: You don't know. (INAUDIBLE) walked in at the same time.


VAN SUSTEREN: What are people in the dorm saying today? Have you talked to anybody about him, whether anybody knows him or...

VOZZA: No, not really. I mean, my roommate, doesn't really know him. None of his friends know him. He was — from what I heard, he was an English major. I really don't have any friends who are English majors.
