COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they're thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked me who burst into an apartment.
Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones met with one of the students to talk about the incident.
"Apparently, his intent was to rape the women and murder us all," said student Charles Bailey.
Bailey said he thought it was the end of his life and the lives of the
10 people inside his apartment for a birthday party after two masked
men with guns burst in through a patio door.
"They just came in and separated the men from the women and said,
'Give me your wallets and cell phones,'" said George Williams of the
College Park Police Department.
Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets. "The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough," said Bailey.
That's when one student grabbed a gun out of a backpack and shot at
the invader who was watching the men. The gunman ran out of the
The student then ran to the room where the second gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, was holding the women.
"Apparently the guy was getting ready to rape his girlfriend. So he
told the girls to get down and he started shooting. The guy jumped out of the window," said Bailey.
A neighbor heard the shots and heard someone running nearby.
"And I heard someone say, 'Someone help me. Call the police. Somebody call the police,'" said a neighbor.
The neighbor said she believes it was Lavant, who was found dead near his apartment, only one building away.

This story was posted a few weeks ago.
However, it does show that perceived gun-free zones are still the best choice for criminals. Fortunately, there was a firearm and person willing to use it present to prevent a rape & massacre.
