At least one killed, 14 hurt in Florida school shooting

Washington: At least one person was killed and 14 others were injured in a school shooting on Wednesday in the US state of Florida. The shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, which was voted Florida's safest city last year, CNN reported. The school said the incident took place as the school was dismissing students. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel confirmed that "multiple" people were killed in shooting.

He said at least 14 victims were transported to local hospitals. Earlier, Law enforcement officials told CNN there are at least two fatalities in the Florida school shooting. The Police have reportedly captured the suspect about 1.6 kilometres from the school and previous reports cited local police as saying a student of the school was identified as the suspected shooter. Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump said, "My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting.

No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school." Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut -- a prominent voice in the fight for gun control -- took to the Senate floor late this afternoon to address the Florida school shooting. We are responsible for a level of mass atrocity that happens in this country with zero parallel anywhere else," he said.

"Let me just note once again for my colleagues: this happens nowhere else other than the United States of America. This epidemic of mass slaughter, this scourge of school shooting after school shooting," he added. "It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction," he said.
