At least two people are dead and fourteen in hospital after a mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida. The shooter, still unnamed, was a former student of the school. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel says the suspect, who is now in custody, is around 18 years old.
Nicole Baltzer, a senior at Stoneman Douglas said she heard multiple gunshots as the fire alarm went off and students began being evacuated. “I heard so many gunshots, at least like six. They were very close,” she told CNN.
US President Donald Trump has posted a message of support and sadness on Twitter: “My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school”.
