A GUNMAN who opened fire at a college sparking a huge armed police response told students to “run for your lives”, according to a terrified pupil.
The hooded shooter started "ranting" before allegedly pointing the gun at a tutor - with his terrifying rampage only being brought to an end when a hero teacher tackled him to the ground.
Armed police were scrambled to the college after two teachers were injured following the frightening incident at 3pm yesterday.
One brave teacher was stabbed in the hand by the attacker as he charged and knocked him down.
Students said the man was armed with a handgun and firing blank rounds in the grounds of the college before he was flattened by the heroic tutor.
Witnesses said up to six more courageous tutors then jumped on the gunman before police arrived and detained him.
