A RECORDING captures the dramatic moment armed cops stormed Crawley College after a suspected gunman 'opened fire' on Tuesday.
It comes as students said they made "final" calls home to loved ones amid ten minutes of terror when shots rang out.
The masked attacker told students "run for your lives" before allegedly pointing the gun at a tutor.
His terrifying rampage was only brought to an end when hero teacher Steve Hopkins and a colleague, named as Pete, tackled him to the ground.
Footage shared on Snapchat shows the brave teachers leaping on the gunman, pinning him down.
Two people - both staff - suffered minor injuries during the frightening incident. Neither sustained gunshot wounds.
Now audio taken from inside the college records the moment cops stormed the college to free weeping students inside.
One of the officers can be heard shouting: "Freeze!"
He then shouts: "One person at a time" as he begins to funnel students to safety.
An adult can be heard saying: "One student coming out." But the cop replies: "Wait there, wait there."
After hearing 16 people are sheltering, the officer asks them to come out in pairs, shouting: "Two at a time - two at a time."
An emotional student can be heard saying: "I'm going to cry", while someone reassures her that she's ok.
An alarm begins to ring out overhead as the officer shouts: "Next two!"
