HORRIFIED students were seen jumping from windows and fleeing for their lives at a university after a gunman stormed the campus.

At least eight people have been killed and 32 people injured in the massacre at Perm State University in Russia.

Footage showed terrified students and staff members hurling themselves from first floor windows as they desperately try to escape.

Other video shows a lone gunman wearing all-black tactical gear and cradling a long gun marching towards the college.

Some 3,000 people are reported to have been on campus when the gunman entered the grounds - killing a security guard on his way in.
