True News :Florida mass shooting: 17 confirmed dead in 'horrific' attack on Stoneman Douglas high school .

Here you can read the terrible events that unfolded at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday.
               


  • Seventeen people – children and adults – were killed when a gunman entered the high school on Wednesday afternoon and launched an attack. Twelve people were found dead inside the school, two were killed outside the building, one in the street, and two died later in hospital from their injuries.
  • The suspect has been named by police as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz. He was arrested at the scene and is being questioned by investigators.
  • The killer was armed with an AR-15 rifle and “multiple magazines”, police said.
  • Cruz was formerly a student at Douglas, but was expelled for disciplinary reasons. A teacher at the school said staff had been warned not to let him back on campus. The suspect had reportedly been receiving treatment for mental health issues.
  • Twelve of those killed have been identified, police said on Wednesday evening. No names of victims have yet been released, but Sheriff Scott Israel said a football coach was among those lost.
  • Fifteen victims remain in hospital: five in a life-threatening condition and 10 with injuries that are not life-threatening.
  • Students who had been at school with Cruz said many classmates had predicted he could “do something” to harm them and that he had previously brought guns to school.
  • Teacher Melissa Falkowski said drills for a code red (active shooter) situation had been well rehearsed:
We could not have been more prepared for this situation … we have trained for this, we have trained the kids for what to do … We did everything that we were supposed to do.



I feel today like our government, our country, has failed us and failed our kids and didn’t keep us safe.

  • Distressing messages from children in lockdown inside the school to their parents show the terror as teachers barricaded their students into classrooms and closets to evade the gunman.
  • The tragedy appears to be the eighth deadliest mass shooting in contemporary US history. It is also one of at least eight US school shootings so far in 2018 that have caused injury or death.
  • President Donald Trump tweeted his “prayers and condolences” to those affected, but decided not to speak about the attack, reports said.
  • But others said thoughts and prayers were not enough. Chris Murphy, senator for Connecticut – site of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, in which 26 children and adults were killed – said:

This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America. This epidemic of mass slaughter, this scourge of school shooting after school shooting.
It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction. We are responsible.
