The sheriff’s office responded to reports of a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland shortly before 3 p.m (Over 3,000 students attend this school).
US Sen. Bill Nelson told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the superintendent of schools in Parkland “believes there are a number of fatalities” (at least 14 confirmed victims have been transported to the hospital).
Right now, the kids are still being evacuated. My heart goes out to all the parents and the students and teachers… and the whole community! Nobody thinks they are putting their kids in the line of fire by just sending them to school.
President Trump tweeted that his “prayers and condolences” are with the families of those affected by the shooting, and said: “No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.”
