Trump Orders Flags At Half-Staff After School Shooting

"Just learned some terrible and shocking news involving a family friend who's son was shot today at the school".

The mass shooting at a Florida high school hit close to home for Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere.

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel told the Miami Herald the school had expelled Cruz a year ago for "disciplinary reasons". He said Cruz was quiet and very respectful but also sad.

"He had countless magazines, multiple magazines, and at this point, we believe he had one AR-15 rifle", the sheriff added.

The suspect reportedly fled school grounds, and was able to escape by blending in with other students who were running to safety.

When the shooting started, Feis - a school security guard, as well - reportedly stepped between the shooter and students, taking bullets in the act. Ellen DeGeneres, Alyssa Milano and Elizabeth Banks were just a few of the celebrities who voiced the need for new gun laws and restrictions.

Nikolas Cruz, who officials have identified as the man who killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, may have hinted at his horrific February 14 attack five months ago.

She posted: "We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school".

Last year, a gunman opened fire on a church in Texas, killing 26 people. The 19-year-old was charged on Thursday morning.

The president offered sympathy in another tweet on Wednesday and said he spoke with Florida's governor, but he has not addressed the nation.

News of the shooting quickly spread to many celebrities who expressed their condolences and also give their thoughts and suggestions on gun reform.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said 12 people had been killed within the school building, two people were killed just outside, one on a nearby street corner and two people died in hospital.

"We actually, a lot of kids threw jokes around Iike that, saying that he's the one to shoot up the school, but it turns out everyone predicted it". But Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, now a crime scene, will remain closed through the President's Day weekend.

Students were led off the campus by heavily armed police officers. "Some of our policymakers and some people need to look in the mirror and take some action because ideas are great, but without action, ideas stay ideas and children die". He was later questioned overnight before being booked into jail.

A shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County Wednesday afternoon has resulted in 17 deaths.

When a shooter opened fire at a U.S. high school on Wednesday afternoon, football coach and security guard Aaron Feis reportedly stepped in front of the bullets to save the students.

Seventeen people, including the suspect, were sent to area hospitals, said Dr. Evan Boyar of Broward Health.
