Update: 17 Dead in South Florida High School Shooting

A person opened fire at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida this afternoon. There have been official reports of injuries and fatalities, but the information is extremely vague and will no doubt become more specific as more news is available.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Department says they have a suspect in custody and that 14 victims have been transported to nearby hospitals. The mayor of Coral Springs, whose fire department helped respond to the call, says there have been fatalities.

CBS posted this video of a student filming on his cell phone while seeking refuge in a classroom. Many gunshots can be heard:
