TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Wednesday marks five years since the Strozier Library shooting at Florida State University.

Just after midnight on Nov. 20, 2014, a man went into the library and shot three people.

31-year-old Myron May shot two students and one employee.

The Florida State University Police Department and the Tallahassee Police Department responded and killed May outside the library.

They say he refused to drop his gun. Several students we talked to on campus Wednesday said they didn't even know about the Strozier Library shooting.

Those who had heard about it, feel like it's been forgotten.

"I feel like it's just students passively saying it but no one officially from FSU I think. I feel like it was so long ago it's sad to say but people forgot about it," said two FSU students.

Farhan Ronny Ahmed, who was a student at the time, was paralyzed after being shot.

In January, Florida State University reached a $1 million settlement with Ahmed.
