Trump suggests Fla. shooting suspect was mentally disturbed

Florida high school shooter in custody, sheriff says; multiple injuries reported

At 21, people can legally buy handguns from a licensed dealer.

One of the early heroes from the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school Wednesday was the school's assistant football coach.

As students began to run out of classrooms, officials say the teen set off gas grenades and began firing an AR-15 style rifle.

Caesar Figueroa said when he got to the school to check on his 16-year-old daughter, he saw police officers drawing machine-guns as they approached the campus.

'Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem.

President Trump sent out a condolence message via Twitter, which said, "My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the bad Florida shooting".

Our Nation grieves with those who have lost loved ones in the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

U.S. vice-president Mike Pence thanked the law enforcement and emergency medical professionals who responded to the shooting: "Our hearts break for all the victims and families affected by today's awful school shooting in Broward County, FL".

The Miami Herald reported that Feis is a 1999 graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Cruz was charged Thursday with 17 counts of premeditated murder. Others were injured and taken to local hospitals.

Trump says the entire nation "with one heavy heart" is praying for the victims and their families.

Indian PM Under Domestic Pressure to Resume Political Dialogue With Pakistan
Sitharaman said the February 10 attack left at least five soldiers and one civilian dead and 11 other people injured. The National Investigation Agency, India's premier counter-terror unit will probe the Jammu attack, an official said.

Israel said investigators were dissecting the suspect's social media posts.

Francis said he was praying for the dead and wounded and those who are grieving. Cruz, a former student, used a rifle but may have also had a handgun. "Along those lines, they're very customizable-most average people can figure out how to install accessories like forward trigger grips that let you hold the gun at waist height and spray bullets while stabilizing the gun, laser sights, and you can add high-capacity magazines".

The shooting ranks among the deadliest in modern USA history. He was later questioned overnight before being booked into jail.

After setting his house on fire over domestic dispute, a shooter went on a killing spree and entered Santa Monica College campus where he opened fire at students and killed many in the streets. At least 14 people were taken to hospital.

At 5-foot-7 and 131 pounds, he was expected to make his first appearance before a judge later Thursday morning in Broward County court.

"They let him live here because he didn't have a place to live", said attorney Jim Lewis, who is representing the family who gave Cruz a place to stay.

"It's catastrophic. There really are no words", Sheriff Israel tweeted later.

For more than an hour, the school was at the mercy of a gunman on the loose.

The gunman was identified as Nicolas Cruz by a USA official briefed on the investigation.

Counselors are being made available for students, teachers and staff, but the school will remain closed as an investigation continues.

The day started normally at the school, which had a morning fire drill, and students were in class around 2:30 p.m. when another alarm sounded.
