On February 14, 2018, a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing seventeen students and staff members and injuring seventeen others. Witnesses identified nineteen-year-old expelled student Nikolas Cruz as the assailant. Cruz fled the scene on foot by blending with other students, and was arrested about one hour later in nearby Coral Springs.
He confessed to being the perpetrator and he was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and 17 counts of attempted murder.
Cruz’s killing spree is the deadliest high school shooting in United States history.
Then just last week in Sao Paulo, Brazil two former students stormed the State School Raul Brazil and fired randomly at students and staff–killing ten.
