PARKLAND, FL - Seventeen people were killed and more than a dozen others were taken to area hospitals after a shooting Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said. The lone shooter was taken into custody off campus without incident. Israel told reporters that Nikolas Cruz, 19, was previously expelled from the high school.
Israel said Cruz used an AR-15 rifle in the shooting and was equipped with multiple magazines. The sheriff said 12 people were found dead inside the school, two just outside the building and one on Pine Island Road. Israel said two other victims died at the hospital.
