Default san jose shooting

I dont think ive seen a post about this shooting. Anyways on sat there was a shooting about 10 mins from my house. It can be found at http://www.foxreno.com/news/15675881/detail.html . A friend of mine had a family member that was involved. He was actually the one who got shot at but was hiding in the closet on the phone with police. My question is what would you guys do in this situation? You are renting a room or say maby an appt and some guy opens fire at innocent people. Theres a stand off, your inside and he's inside. The catch is you are NOT armed. Would you take the chance and try to bail out of the house knowing there are police outside knowing your there? or would you take your chances hiding with the knowledge that the shooter knows your there alive and well? Also keep in mind that it was a 6-7 hour stand off and your cell phone ran out of batteries and lost contact with police 3 hours into this (if you stayed this long)

I thought about it long and hard and I still dont know what would be the best (maby not smart) solution.

If that was me and I had the chance, I would jump out the window, well as long as it a one story.

I'd jump out a second story in a heartbeat, and a third without too much hesitation. A 10-20 foot drop beats getting murdered.
