Default Potentially 20 injured in Florida school shooting.

Welp...

Quote:
Authorities were responding to an active shooter at a Florida high school on Wednesday afternoon. The situation still was not secured, more than an hour after it began.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office said on Twitter just after 3 p.m. that the shooter was still at large at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Earlier, the sheriff's office tweeted that "there are reports of victims," but it wasn't immediately clear how many people were injured. Broward County Public Schools said on Twitter that the sound of gunfire broke out shortly before school was dismissed for the day, and that it was receiving reports of "possible multiple injuries."

The high school went on immediate lockdown, Parkland Mayor Christine Hunschofsky told NBC Miami. She did not have details on casualties or who the shooter was.

"Itís sad. Itís sad that these tragedies happen in our country," she said. "Many of the students have been in touch with their parents. We have, many many parents out here."

A parent of a student told the station that her son was hiding inside a closet at the school with classmates, and that teachers had told them not to leave the building.

The Borward Schools system tweeted at about 3:40 p.m. that they were "receiving reports of possible multiple injuries."

On a side note.... this is a high school and it lets out at 2:40??

I don't think we got out until 4:30.

You know.... when I first saw the news video of today's events, my first thought was... 'They did a nice job keeping the roadways clear for emergency personnel to move in and out', because I watched them rush a kid (dead or alive, not sure) into an ambulance and then it drove off down a clear road.

Then I remembered what Sandy Hook looked like, and how STUPID they must have been to block in all their emergency vehicles so even if they did need to get out, they couldn't have.

Why they would park like this, the world may never know:

Florida high schools are weird. I used to get out 2:30 with that Block Schedule nonsense.
