Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida went into lockdown, as a gunman opened fire just prior to school letting out, injuring at least 20 people. Florida Senator Bill Nelson reports that there were “many deaths.” The school was evacuated. The shooter is now in custody.

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.

The incident occurred just prior to 3 p.m. school dismissal. Because of the number of people injured, it is classified as a “mass casualty” incident. Broward County Sheriff has notified local hospitals to expect numerous victims, many of whom may be students. Authorities say they believe the shooter is a student who attended class earlier in the day.

The gunman was described as wearing a black hat, a maroon or burgundy colored shirt and black pants. He was last seen on the west side of a three story building on campus.  WSVN reported that the shooter is now in custody.
