Just spoke with @POTUS about shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. My thoughts and prayers are with the students, their families and the entire community. We will continue to receive briefings from law enforcement and issue updates.
BREAKING: ACTIVE SHOOTER AT HIGH SCHOOL IN PARKLAND, FLORIDA! PEOPLE SHOT!
Gunshots were reported at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The gunman is reported to still be at large with law enforcement officers from multiple agencies flooding the area.
Coral Springs advised students and teachers in the locked down school, located at 5901 Northwest Pine Island Rd.,to remain barricaded inside until officers reach them.
There are reports of shooting victims, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
The Broward School District said that around dismissal time at 2:40 p.m., staff and students heard what sounded like gunfire and they enacted a “code red” lock down.
“We are receiving reports of possible multiple injuries,” said spokeswoman Tracy Clark.
A television news helicopter report showed several people on gurneys being placed into into fire rescue ambulances and groups of children walking across Northwest Pine Island Road.
President Trump “has been made aware of the school shooting in Florida,” said Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters. “We are monitoring the situation,” she said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected.”
Gov. Rick Scott spoke on the phone with Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, Broward schools superintendent Robert Runcie and Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen, according to the governor’s office.
There are 3,208 children in grades 9 — 12 enrolled at the school.
Parents are area schools — including Sawgrass Springs Middle School and Westglades Middle School — said they received texts that those campuses were locked down.
Jay Golden, of Parkland, has a daughter Rachel who was at the school when the first sign of problem came. Rachel, a senior, texted him that there was a Code Red, a shooting, and she didn’t know if it was real or a drill.
At 3 p.m. she still hadn’t been evacuated from the 900 building, but told her father she was safe with 40 other students and a teacher.
“She was crying, she’s scared,” he said. “She’s been texting back and forth. She’s OK at the moment.”
“I’m freaking out,” her father said. “This is crazy, this stuff shouldn’t be going on in these schools. People are crazy. I don’t know what goes on through these people’s minds these days, it’s a scary thing. It’s one of those things – you don’t want to put a metal protector and treat them like prisoners but they have to figure something out. You put your kids in school and it’s supposed to be a safe place and this stuff happens all the time.”
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is now dismissing students. We are receiving reports of possible multiple injuries. Law enforcement and the District’s Special Investigative Unit are currently on site. The District will provide updates as more information becomes available.
#BSO is working a developing incident regarding a report of active shooter located at 5901 Pine Island Rd, Parkland. Here’s what we know so far: deputies are responding to reports of a shooting at Stoneman Douglas High. There are reports of victims. PIO will be on scene 3:15pm.
So far Broward County Fire Rescue is reporting that 20 people are injured, according to CNN affiliate WSVN. The Broward Sheriff’s Office says there are reports of victims. The extent of injuries remains unknown.
Cops confirm it remains an active shooter situation.
Some students were reportedly barricading themselves into their classrooms, while others were seen running out of the building with their book bags as police and SWAT teams swarmed the school.
Some students exited the building in single-file rows with hands raised overhead to show they carried no weapons. Others held onto other students as they made their way out past helmeted police in camouflage with weapons drawn.
There are other reports that the shooter, wearing a burgundy shirt and black pants, may have fled the school, mixing in with the other students as they fled the building.
Coral Springs police have advised people to avoid the neighborhood while the active shooter situation is underway.
Just spoke to Governor Rick Scott. We are working closely with law enforcement on the terrible Florida school shooting.
