SALISBURY, Md. – Some of the furniture that sits in the Fireside Lounge inside the Guerrieri University Center at Salisbury University is still off-limits as cleaning crews hurried to erase the remnants of a deer that crashed through a window and ran frantically through the building on Monday afternoon.

Payam Shoureshi and Emily Considine were working in the writing center on the second floor when the deer barreled through the first floor window.

“We just heard an explosion sound,” Shoureshi said.

“It was kind of just ramming into windows and running all over the place,” Considine said, “It was very chaotic.”

People downstairs ran for cover, not knowing what the deer might do in its panicked state. Eventually the deer was able to escape by smashing through a second window. An SU police officer euthanized it.

On Tuesday, the campus was abuzz with the bizarre story. Social media was as well, many posts were light-hearted but those who were there say it was a scary and sad scene.

"It's funny, I guess, in theory,” Considine said. “But I guess you're automatically more concerned for people’s safety and feeling sad for the deer.”

SU officials say nobody was injured and the windows will be replaced over the next few days.
