Oregon : Daughter of Pastor Randy Scroggins Escapes Shooter's Bullets by Playing Dead Covered in Classmate's Blood

The daughter of an Oregon pastor survived the horrific shooting at Umpqua Community College last Thursday by pretending she was dead after being covered by the blood of a fellow student next to her who was shot and killed.

Lacey Scroggins, the 18-year-old daughter of Oregon Pastor Randy Scroggins, felt the body of her classmate, Trevin, on her as she pretended to be dead while 26-year-old shooter Chris Harper Mercer went on a killing spree that left 10 dead and seven injured.
"She said after [a] loud bang 'I felt Trevin's body. I felt the weight [of it]. It's almost like he had stopped breathing but he was on me and I looked under my left arm and all that blood from Trevin was coming under my arm.' And she said, 'I knew then that I was going to die,'" said Scroggins as he described his daughter's experience to CNN during an interview earlier this week.
The shooter believed he had killed Scroggins during the melee and left her among the bodies, according to the report.
Scroggins also shared his daughter's experience during his sermon at New Beginnings Church of God on Sunday while discussing the possibility of forgiving the shooter, according to an ABC News. 
"Someone asked me, 'Can you forgive the shooter?'" said Scroggins to the congregation. "I don't focus on the man. I focus on the evil that was in the man."
Mercer's motives for the shooting were unclear, but witnesses' have said he was specifically targeting Christians.
