Authorities in Parkland Florida have a 19 year old man in custody for the disturbing mass shooting that happened February 14, 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. 17 people died after police say student Nikolas Cruz returned to the school that he was expelled from earlier for making threats, targeting many innocent students and staff with his AR-15 rifle. The attack lasted roughly ten minutes but shattered many people’s hearts for a lifetime.
The drama started shortly before 3 p.m., when after activating a fire alarm, Cruz started shooting at staff and students who were attempting to leave the building. He shortly after followed students who were attempting to take shelter back inside of the school building all the while continuing to target numerous people, and then ultimately trying to blend in with other frightened students. He was apprehended later that same day in Coral Springs, Florida according to the the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
