Breaking: At least 17 dead in ‘horrific’ Florida school shooting (Photos)

A gunman opened fire at a South Florida high school on Wednesday, killing 17 people and sending students running for their lives, according to law enforcement officers on the scene.

At least 14 victims were being treated by Broward Health Hospitals from the incident at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland; five are in life-threatening condition. Victims include students and adults, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

The suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, was taken into custody off campus. He slipped out of the school after the shooting by blending in with other students who were trying to escape, according to two law enforcement sources and an eyewitness.

Cruz had “countless magazines” and was believed to have an AR-15 rifle, the sheriff said.

The sheriff said Cruz had attended the school but was expelled for disciplinary reasons.
