At least 17 dead, 14 wounded after shooting at Florida high school

Embargo Miami- Ft. Lauderdale FL** The Broward County Sheriff's Office in Florida is responding to reports of a shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. There are reports of victims

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.

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said at a press conference that Cruz was a former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and that he had been expelled.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the students, teachers, and first responders at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida", said Rep. Roger Marshall on twitter.

The shooter, identified as Nikolas Cruz, 19, was taken into police custody. Soon after the shooting was reported, officers surrounded the campus and started evacuating from the scene.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Wednesday evening that authorities have already begun to delve into Cruz's social media posts and online activity.

Law enforcement sources said the suspect used a.223 caliber, AR-15 style firearm in the shooting. Two people died in the hospital, and three others died outside the school building.

A SWAT team has been filmed storming a USA classroom where terrified students huddled in fear of a gunman who killed at least 17 people and injured dozens more. He said: "No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school".

He said the teen was arrested without incident after he was located off the school grounds in a nearby community.

"We've trained the kids what to do, and the frustration is that we did everything that we were supposed to do...and still have to have so many casualties...it's very emotional", Falkowski said.

A former student, who teachers and parents had said was known to be risky, came onto the campus and opened fire. Loud gunshots could also be heard as well as someone screaming and yelling, "Oh my God".

Cruz apparently left school and moved to North Florida a couple months ago after his mother died.

Rosenblatt said that her daughter made the connection after the shooting, when she visited the purported Instagram account of the shooter.
