Jim Gard, one of Cruz's former teachers, said he threatened other students. "I don't know how we're alive", says student Gabrielle Pupo.

A former student armed with a rifle stalked the halls of a Florida school, breaking windows and shooting terrified students in a massacre that left 17 people dead Wednesday, authorities said.

Last year, a gunman opened fire on a church in Texas, killing 26 people.

According to reports, the 19-year-old entered the school around 2:30 p.m. local time.

Israel, who said his triplets once attended the school, urged anxious parents to head to a nearby hotel to collect their children. He was arrested about two miles from the school shortly after the shooting and initially taken to a hospital with breathing problems. Then he was taken to sheriff's headquarters for questioning overnight.

Ben Bennight, a 36-year-old MS bail bondsman and YouTuber, alerted the bureau on September 24, 2017-the suspected gunman's birthday, according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office-to an alarming comment posted by a user named Nikolas Cruz.
