NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, February 14, 2018, 3:00 PM


Shooting at Marjory StoneMan Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida
A shooting was reported at a Florida high school Wednesday afternoon.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office said it was “working a developing incident regarding a report of active shooter” at Majority Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland.

WSVN-TV reported multiple victims were being treated for injuries.


Police and ambulances swarmed the school, which was placed on lock down.

At least 18 other school shootings have occurred nationwide this year, according to the gun control advocacy group Everytown For Gun Safety.

Among the shootings was a Jan. 23 attack by a 15-year-old student at a Kentucky high school that killed two students and injured nearly 20 more.


UPDATE:
*Local news calling it a mass causality incident
*Shooter is a student and still at large
*Unofficial reports now that a fire drill got them all out and the shooting started! They are thinking shooter could have had help from someone in the school who pulled fire alarm as shooter shot at them!
*Helicopters are flying all over, neighborhoods are also in lockdown
*some kids are still locked down in school
*"Suspect named: Nicholas Cruz ginger with freckles 5’8 burgundy sweater ROTC program, house and work address known, suspect at large- lockdown extended to nearby Walmart, students still trapped in the school as second shooter still believed to be inside, 20-50 victims including a teacher who has died from saving a student (all unconfirmed but multiple, multiple reporting of said facts)" from facebook
*mayor on CNN not confirming much
*suspect may be in custody. CNN showing kid cuffed and being patted down
*saying he is a former student.

*Former Deputy Director of the FBI Phil Mudd (now a CNN CORRESPONDENT) just broke down in tears on air over this and the fact THAT NOTHING IS DONE!

*Local authorities now reporting 17 dead

*shooter went in with gas mask on and had smoke grenades.

not again. I will never be used to this. I hope no one died and that they catch the shooter before anyone else is targeted.
