Nikolas Cruz was a student at the Florida High School

At least 17 people have died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, after a gunmen opened fire at the end of the school day.

"Heartbreaking news out of Florida".

A 19-year-old man has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder following a mass shooting at a Florida high school.

It takes much longer to clear the scene, however, since responding law enforcement officers need to methodically go through, room by room, to both secure and de-arm the shooter and to help students and faculty at the school, Garrett explained.

The sound of gunfire ripped through the air shortly before students were to be dismissed for the day, school officials said on Twitter, adding that multiple people had been injured in the incident. Fourteen other victimes were wounded. The victims have not yet been named at the time of this post.

Cruz was arrested around a mile from the school, an event which was caught on camera by passers-by and news helicopters. Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

Reports and interviews about Cruz have been troubling.

CNN reported that Cruz was expelled from the high school for unspecified disciplinary reasons. Former classmates called him "quiet and odd", "troubled" and noted that he bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun.

Students have tweeted images from the scene, showing a lockdown that has them hiding under desks.

But since January 2013, there have been at least 291 school shootings across the country - an average of about one a week, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a non-profit group that advocates for gun control.

"Our district is in a tremendous state of grief and sorrow", said Robert Runcie, superintendent of the school district in Parkland, about an hour's drive north of Miami.

"I had him in my math class previous year and like I had a lot of suspicions about him".

The suspected shooter was reportedly treated for mental problems at a local clinic and expelled from school for threatening students and demonstrating abusive behavior. Officials also published a mugshot photograph of him.

Cruz and his biological brother were adopted by Lynda and Roger Cruz. Major streets run along two sides and an expressway passes nearby on the other not far from a residential neighborhood of single family homes.

"I told her, 'Don't call me, because I don't want no one to hear your voice.' So, she's still trapped in a closet in there".

"I can not stop hearing the sound of the gun as [the shooter] walked down my hallway", wrote Morgan Williams, who said she's a student at Stoneman Douglas.
