17 killed in Florida High School shooting

At least 17 students were killed when a heavily armed 19-year-old, who had been expelled from a South Florida high school, opened fire on campus shortly before classes let out on Wednesday.

 

 

The incident took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, a school of more than 3,000 students in a tony suburb northwest of Fort Lauderdale where houses sit on broad lots.

 

 

According to the police, the suspect was identified as Nikolas Cruz, who had recently attended the school but had been kicked out for ‘disciplinary reasons’.

 

The suspect was captured after a manhunt.
