Police in the Broward, Florida district say suspected shooters at a high school in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday afternoon (14/2) have been arrested. Associated Press reported the shooter was identified as an 18-year-old male, a former student at the school.
No further details have been submitted but local television stations reported at least 14 casualties. Police have not provided information about the victim or how seriously the injury suffered.
Senator Bill Nelson from the state of Florida told CNN that based on information obtained from school authorities, "there are a number of deaths."
Police describes the situation as an "active situation" as they look for other possible shooters. The FBI also conducted an investigation.
Some of the victims were rushed to the hospital by ambulance.
Some students said everything in the school seemed normal when there was a fire alarm. They said hearing several gunfire while leaving school, and a number of students ran back into the school for cover.
Police and medical teams surround the scene and call on everyone who should not be in the neighborhood to stay away.

But Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut state blamed Congress for what he called the "specter" of school shootings. "What is happening here is not a coincidence, or because of bad luck, but because of the consequences of what is not done We are responsible for the mass atrocities committed in this country, which are incomparable anywhere," Murphy said.
Connecticut is the state where there was a shooting incident at Sandy Hook primary school in 2012, killing 20 students and six teachers. [em]
