At least 17 dead in Florida high school shooting

Florida police officers

At least 17 people were killed and scores injured in a shooting at the Stoneman Douglas High School in the southeasternmost U.S. state of Florida.

As Cruz opened fire with an AR-15 rifle, Coach Feis, according to students, jumped in front of the bullets. He reportedly pulled a fire alarm at the end of the school day in an effort to increase the death toll from his attack.

February 15 (ANI): A former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, aged 19, has been taken to custody in connection with the incident of Florida school shooting on Thursday.

School officials said Cruz was attending another school in Broward County after his expulsion. "There really are no words".

"We received no warnings", Superintendent Robert Runcie told reporters, according to The Miami Herald. Multiple reports indicate he was expelled from the school.

"Seventeen people were taken to the Broward Health hospitals", said Dr. Evan Boyar, Chair and Medical Director of Broward Health North. Police had arrested Cruz at least a mile from the school, which is about 30 miles northwest of Fort Lauderdale.

"Those that do know they lost a family member, I just can't imagine how their lives have been changed", Scott said. We fell underneath my teacher's desk.

"The shooter went and set off the fire alarm so the kids would come pouring out of the classrooms into the hall", Bill Nelson, a USA senator told reporters, The Guardian said.

Israel said both students and adults had been killed, 12 of whom have now been identified.

It wasn't the first school shooting - far from it.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office gave no details in briefly tweeting that development shortly after 4 p.m. Actually, I was kicked out of school myself and I saw what guns he had, he showed me personally, and a lot of time, the kids wouldn't pick on him, because, they knew what could go on.

Rick Scott joined law enforcement agents near the site of the deadly school shooting and offered his condolences to the victims' families and survivors.
