Shooting at South Florida high school
A former student unleashed a hail of gunfire in a Florida high school yesterday, killing at least 17 adults and children, authorities said.
The suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, was expelled for unspecified disciplinary reasons.
The shooting, which is among the 10 deadliest mass shootings in modern US history, revived debate over gun control while American politicians offered their condolences, CNN reported.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is closed for the rest of the week, Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said. The district will offer grief counseling to students and their families.
