An unbelievable scene in Prague, as students find safety on the ledge of a building, after a gunman opened fire inside a university building … with multiple people reportedly dead.

It’s currently unclear how things started, but images from the scene show a group of students hanging off the building, trying to get out of the shooter’s line of sight.

Czech police say 10 people are dead, with dozens of others injured — cops also say the shooter has been “eliminated.” He has yet to be identified.

In the midst of the attack, the school’s philosophy department was evacuated … with several people spotted fleeing the scene. An email sent to staff told faculty, “Don’t go anywhere, if you’re in the offices, lock them and place furniture in front of the door, turn off the lights.”
