Multiple deaths in South Florida high school shooting

Multiple fatalities were reported in a shooting that occured at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Authorities report the suspect is in custody.

Multiple deaths were reported Wednesday as gunfire broke out at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, with the suspected shooter arrested near the school.

Coral Springs Mayor Skip Campbell, whose city contracts fire service in Parkland, confirms there were "multiple fatalities."

There were 14 victims, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. The agency did not say how many were fatalities.

The suspect, a former student, was taken into custody off campus without incident, said Broward Sheriff Scott Israel. The suspect was both inside and outside the school building in the course of the shootings, the sheriff said.

A man in custody, wearing a red shirt, black pants and black boots, was seen being placed on a gurney. At 4:47 p.m. he was seen being wheeled in to Broward Health North hospital in Deerfield Beach.

FBI agents were on the scene interviewing students asking for anyone who saw the shooter.

“You’re ok!” One student said as she cried and hugged her friend who had just come out. “You’re safe now, don’t worry.”

Samuel Dykes, a freshman, was on the third floor of the school when he said he heard gunshots, and saw several bodies in a classroom.

SWAT told the class to keep their eyes forward as they exited the school, Dykes said.

At around dismissal time at 2:40 p.m., staff and students heard what sounded like gunfire and they enacted a “code red” lock down, according to the Broward School District.

A television news helicopter report showed several people on gurneys being placed into fire rescue ambulances and groups of children walking across Northwest Pine Island Road. Television news cameras showed a young man with reddish hair wearing a red shirt who was surrounded by SWAT officers and put in handcuffs and being taken into custody.

“It’s a horrific situation,” Broward County Superintendent Robert Runcie said. “It’s just a horrible day for us.”

Students were streaming down Pine Island Road at 3:30. Some of them crying, some were talking on cell phones.

Meghan Walton's mascara was running as she walked down Pine Island Road with her mother. Derval Walton. She was waiting in the car line to pick her 15 year old freshman daughter up when she got the ominous text from her: "Code Red"

"Kids were running out full of blood," Derval Walton said. "Kids were falling in the grass."

Hannah Siren, 14, was in math class on the third floor.

"The people next door to us must have not locked their door," she said, breaking into tears. "They all got shot"

How many?
"10 or ... 7"

President Trump tweeted: “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.”

Deputy White House Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said, “We are monitoring the situation,” she said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected.”
Gov. Rick Scott announced plans to come to Broward County immediately. He spoke on the phone with Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, Broward schools superintendent Robert Runcie and Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen, according to the governor’s office.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said she was on her way to the area.
“Praying for everyone involved in today’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School,” she said in a statement issued by her office. “I am on the way with my victim advocates and we will be available in full force to help all victims and their families with any services they need.”

There are 3,208 children in grades 9 — 12 enrolled at the school.
Parents at area schools — including Sawgrass Springs Middle School and Westglades Middle School — said they received texts that those campuses were locked down.

All Broward school district athletic events were canceled for that night.
Jay Golden, of Parkland, has a daughter Rachel who was at the school when the first sign of problem came. Rachel, a senior, texted him that there was a Code Red, a shooting, and she didn’t know if it was real or a drill.

At 3 p.m. she still hadn’t been evacuated from the 900 building, but told her father she was safe with 40 other students and a teacher.

“She was crying, she’s scared,” he said. “She’s been texting back and forth. She’s OK at the moment.”

“I’m freaking out,” her father said. “This is crazy, this stuff shouldn’t be going on in these schools. People are crazy. I don’t know what goes on through these people’s minds these days, it’s a scary thing. It’s one of those things - you don’t want to put a metal protector and treat them like prisoners but they have to figure something out. You put your kids in school and it’s supposed to be a safe place and this stuff happens all the time.”

  1. You smell that? Drill going on earlier? Traumatize the kids? Have them run in fear? Sandy Hook revisited? Can you smell this? Want my guns? Want what little freedom we have? Wake up people, your masters,(?), want you to cower in fear. Your masters want you to accept more of their control. It's all about control,... isn't it? When seconds count,... the cops are minutes away. No, you can't have my ability to defend myself. (against you).

  2. Give this situation some time. Remember Sandy Hook and other school 'shootings'. After several days to a few weeks, the original story began to unfold as witnesses began to fit the pieces of the puzzle together to produce an accurate picture depicting a story far different than that originally published in the media. In this situation some had reported they heard this kid scream out 'allah akbar' when the shots began. One student stated this kid was always in trouble with all of his teachers since he first knew him in elementary school. Military bases are all over Florida - east coast and south and up along the west coast to Pensacola. The kid is troubled - could have been abused even from birth, perhaps sexually abused, physically abused by parent or family or friends, and programmed by MK Ultra to pull off this massacre just as other shooters have been proven to have had done to them. WHY? There is a civil war going on in this nation - good vs bad - evil vs good - shadow 'government' vs the struggle to re-establish the rightful government, the Republic and our gold backed currency. Besides trying to hold on to the control the left/'bad'/shadow 'gov' has had for years and years, one of the things about this nation that continues to present a very real problem for the left is how much control they can achieve and maintain when Americans still have their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. So what kinds of schemes can the left fabricate to continue to erode our 2nd amendment rights until they finally get the American public to literally BEG for the military (UN?) to go door to door to confiscate the guns of Americans? And what part of the population would be most likely to quickly reach the point of having 'had enough' and demanding the confiscation of our arms? The parents of children of course. This IS about CONTROL and to get that CONTROL what do you think has to be done to get us to grant it to the leftists? Hurt our children of course. I believe this was yet another staged shooting - though there may have been some killed in this one. PARENTS - POLICE - MILITIA - TEACHERS = JOIN FORCES AND PATROL THE SCHOOL GROUNDS. When the leftists/muslims/commies come across Americans exercising their RIGHT to bear arms to patrol the school grounds and hallways, and even places where people like to congregate, and especially if some of those bastards wind up dead in their attempts to kill us - perhaps they will get the picture of what will happen due to their attempts to deprive us of our rights to freedom and happiness, and prove to them that Americans are NOT wimps. We WILL join forces and defend ourselves and our communities. Don't cower in fear - STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AND DON'T ALLOW THE ENEMY WITHIN TO TAKE THEM FROM YOU. DIVIDED WE FALL/FAIL - BUT UNITED WE WILL NOT FAIL - WE WIN!!! WE WILL PERSEVERE.

    The thing that smells is the 35 year vet FBI agent breaking down in tears the MSM keeps pushing and the report that this teenage psycopath was a isil supporter. I hope it was a false flag. I think in today's Trump America we don't really have to worry about the 2nd amendment going anywhere, this kind of sheeet is only going to encourage armed security and more cops at schools... Loose loose for the nwo scum.
