-

Police are asking that people near the high school stay away from the area as the horrific scene unfolds. At least five people have been shot, and the school is currently on lockdown with no one allowed to enter or exit other than law enforcement officers.

The incident occurred just moments ago at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

It is unknown the seriousness of the injuries sustained, or if all the victims were students.

Some reports coming in are of a swat situation currently unfolding on the campus. According to CNN:

“The Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Florida is responding to reports of a shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. There are reports of victims.”

“Aerial footage from CNN affiliate WSVN showed a number of people lying on the ground outside the school, being treated for injuries and moved to ambulances. Dozens of police vehicles are on site, including one tank, along with a team of heavily armed law enforcement officers.”

Other reports indicate that this is an active shooter incident.
