“So yesterday I was in my AP environmental science class, we had taken out all of our notes and we’re about to pack up to leave school and we hear a ‘pop’ and it happened to be a gunshot that echoed through the hallway,” Hogg told MSNBC last month. “And because of that, my teacher actually went and closed the door but as soon as she closed the door the fire alarm was pulled so this sick man could get more soft targets.”

But in another interview with CBS News, Hogg says he was at home during the shooting, and had to ride his bike several miles to get to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to “get as much video as he could” of the event.
“On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and rode as fast as I could three miles from my house to the school to get as much video and to get as many interviews as I could because I knew that this could not be another mass shooting.”
