'Numerous fatalities' at Florida high school after ex-student opens fire

A former student at a Florida high school opened fire in the school on Wednesday, causing "numerous fatalities" and wounding at least 14 people before he was arrested by police, authorities said. Shortly before dismissal at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, about 45 miles (72 km) north of Miami, the attack sent hundreds of panicked students fleeing into the streets while dozens of police and emergency services personnel swarmed the area. The gunman, about 18 years old, surrendered to police quietly, said Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.
