At least 17 dead in Florida high school attack (VIDEO)
The attacker, who has been arrested by Police in Parkland, has been identified as former student of the school Nikolas Cruz, 19, said Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. Cruz has been expelled from school for disciplinary reasons.
Israel, the sheriff, said about the scene “It’s catastrophic. There really are no words.”
A tweet from the Coral Springs Police department has warned the students and faculty members to ‘Remain barricaded inside until police reach you’.

Donald Trump won the White House campaigning on a promise to support the National Rifle Association and oppose any limits to Americans’ right to own guns. In all, guns have been fired on school property in America at least 18 times this year, according to incidents tracked by Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control group. In eight of these cases, a gun was fired on school property, but no one was injured. Another two incidents were gun suicides, claiming the lives of one student and one adult on school property.
