"Sheriff's office. It's safe to come out," an unknown voice says from behind the door.
A student responds with: "We're not willing to take that risk right now."
"I can't hear you," the unknown person responds.
A student says: "We're not taking that risk right now."
The person responds: "OK, well, come to the door and look at my badge, bro."
The students then turn to each other, suspicious that the person claiming to be from the sheriff's department said "bro."
"He said 'bro,' red flag," a student says.
A few seconds later someone whispers "window," and the students begin climbing out, then run across a walkway where a sheriff's deputy opens a door to let them into another part of the building.
During a press conference on Tuesday night, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said police were told that the gunman may have pretended to be law enforcement to get into classrooms that were barricaded.
