A couple of hours ago, the Broward Sheriff Department notified the public of an active shooter at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

According to the Sun Sentinel, there were 14 victims, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. The agency did not say how many were fatalities.

A man in custody, wearing a red shirt, black pants and black boots, was seen being placed on a gurney. At 4:47 p.m. he was seen being wheeled in to Broward Health North hospital in Deerfield Beach.

FBI agents were on the scene interviewing students asking for anyone who saw the shooter.

“You’re ok!” One student said as she cried and hugged her friend who had just come out. “You’re safe now, don’t worry.”

Samuel Dykes, a freshman, was on the third floor of the school when he said he heard gunshots, and saw several bodies in a classroom.

SWAT told the class to keep their eyes forward as they exited the school, Dykes said.
