17people killed in shooting at South Florida high school

eventeen people died Wednesday after a shooter opened fire at a high school in Parkland, Fla., police said.

In an evening press conference, Scott Israel, the Broward County sheriff, said 17 people were confirmed to have been killed, including 12 within the building, two just outside, one victim killed on the street near the school, and two died in the hospital.

Israel identified the shooting suspect as Nikolas Cruz, 19, who had been previously expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the shooting took place.

arlier in the afternoon Cruz was found alive in Coral Springs, Fla., by a police officer with the Coconut Creek Police Department. He was taken into custody.

Israel also said police one AR-15-style rifle was found, along with “multiple magazines.”

“Pray for these victims and these families,” Israel said.

The suspect allegedly fired shots both outside and inside of the school at varying times, Israel said.

At an earlier press conference Israel said 14 people were injured, and it is unclear whether that number has changed.

Israel said he had spoken with both President Trump and Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

Trump offered federal assistance to local law enforcement, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

The shooting began just before the high school was set to dismiss students for the day, and the school went into lockdown, according to Broward County Public Schools.

Students have since been dismissed.
