Family of FSU student glad son is safe

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany couple, whose son attends Florida State, learned about the shooting Thursday morning.

Chris Michas is a junior pre-med major at Florida State University and his brother, Nick, attends Tallahassee Community College. Both were home safe during the shooting, but like all FSU parents, Janice Michas says she was initially worried about her sons' safety.

"It's scary, but it's unfortunately the way it is everywhere in the world," said FSU parent Julie Michas. "The U.S. is still gonna be a lot safer I think than other countries."

Chris Michas received the Florida State student alert on his phone this morning telling him to take shelter. Julie says she is now signing up to receive those alerts to be better informed.
