Who is the Florida school shooting suspect?

Florida shooting survivor praises school response but warns 'this is something that people cannot get used to'

The 19-year-old charged in a fatal mass shooting at a Florida high school reportedly had been adopted by a couple originally from Long Island.

Law enforcement officials are scheduled to give an update of their investigation into a deadly school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.

Her grandparents now live in metro Atlanta, and her mother is a 1991 graduate of Marietta High School. "We all Indian Americans are praying for the victims", Shekar Reddy, whose friend's son was among those injured in the mass shooting, told PTI.

The gunman - identified as a former student Nikolas Cruz who was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland - was arrested later outside, some distance from the school in an adjacent community.

According to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, investigators have already found some "disturbing" content that could have provided warning signs.

Gabrielle Pupo, a student at the school, said Feis was shot while trying to help other students.

He said authorities told him it was some kind of explosive at one of the residences.

"It is heartbreaking that these violent incidents continue to take place in schools, a place where our children should feel and be the most safe!" she added. "There were problems with him previous year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus".

In one video, people are screaming "Oh my God!" as gunshots rang out. Students & teachers shouldn't have to fear for their safety.

Meanwhile a student, who wasn't named, told local broadcaster WSVN-7 that Cruz was "a troubled kid" who had firearms at home and had talked about using them.

Online, the shooting renewed calls for stricter gun control in the country.
