Police responded to an active shooter situation at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. A source briefed on events says “there are multiple people shot” and the shooter “is possibly a former student.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is breaking news and is happening right now…as more information continues to come in we will update this story as necessary. The police are saying that the shooter might be a former student. 

The father of a student at the school says the shooter was allegedly “wearing a black vest with a red shirt…and supposedly he pulled the fire alarm and planned it,” according to CBS This Morning.

Officers are inside the building looking at surveillance video and trying to identify the shooter. Chopper4 is over the school located at 5901 Pine Island Road Wednesday afternoon.

Margate Fire Dept. says 20 to 50 people might be injured. The U.S. Coast Guard and Palm Beach County are sending helicopters to help. A number of people could be seen being loaded into ambulances on a stretcher.

Inside, a student shared a picture as they took cover.

CBS4’s Rick Folbaum was speaking over text message with a student at the school who is hiding in a closet.

“All of a sudden there was a really loud noise…..people are crying the closet,” the student wrote to him and later asked when police were coming to help them.

The school was placed on lockdown but around 3 p.m. some students could be seen walking out of the school with their hands up, some in tears. Officers are asking people to avoid the area. President Donald Trump has been made aware of the school shooting.

“We are monitoring the situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected,” wrote White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters. Florida Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement on the shooting. At last check, he was on his way to Parkland. source
