Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - FRONT PAGE -

PARKLAND, FLA. » A for­mer stu­dent opened fire at a Florida high school Wed­nes­day, killing “nu­mer­ous” peo­ple, send­ing stu­dents run­ning out into the streets and SWAT team mem­bers swarm­ing in be­fore au­thor­i­ties took him into cus­tody about an hour af­ter he left the school.

Fran­tic par­ents rushed to the scene and am­bu­lances con­verged at Mar­jory Stone­man Dou­glas High School. Live footage showed emer­gency work­ers ap­pear­ing to treat wounded peo­ple on the side­walks.

The Broward County Sher­iff’s Of­fice tweeted Wed­nes­day that “so far we have at least 14 vic­tims.”

Broward County Schools Su­per­in­ten­dent Robert Run­cie said there were “nu­mer­ous fa­tal­i­ties.”

The male shooter, about 18, once was a stu­dent at the school but not at the time of the shoot­ing, county Sher­iff Scott Is­rael said. He said the shooter was out­side and in­side the school at points in the at­tack, and taken into cus­tody “with­out in­ci­dent.”
