Our hearts are heavy this morning as 17 people were brutally murdered by 19-year old former student who had been expelled.
A former student opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle at a Florida high school Wednesday, killing at least 17 people and sending hundreds of students fleeing into the streets
The shooter, Nikolas Cruz, who was equipped with a gas mask and smoke grenades, set off a fire alarm to draw students out of classrooms shortly before the day ended at one of the state's largest schools in Parkland, Florida.
The 19-year-old suspect had been kicked out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
This is the nation's deadliest school shooting since a gunman attacked an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
