A former high school student who was expelled from his school launched an attack on his former school killing at least 17 people at a high school campus in Parkland, Florida, police have said.
The suspect has been named as Nikolas Cruz, 19, opened fire on his victims leaving other to scamper for safety. Mr. Cruz killed three people outside the school, before entering the building and killing another 12.
This shooting is one of the deadliest school shootings since 26 people were killed at a Connecticut school in 2012.
At the moment it was yet unclear why he decided to carry out the shooting. The police, however, responded within minutes of the situation and were able to apprehend Cruz.
