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.

That was the last contact he had with the Federal Bureau of Investigation until Wednesday, he said.

Several U.S. lawmakers called for tougher gun control laws in the wake of the shooting. Sen.

At 5-foot-7 and 131 pounds, he was expected to make his first appearance before a judge later Thursday morning in Broward County court. Jail records don't list an attorney for him.

USA vice-president Mike Pence thanked the law enforcement and emergency medical professionals who responded to the shooting: "Our hearts break for all the victims and families affected by today's awful school shooting in Broward County, FL".

Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School is one of the biggest schools in Broward County with about 3,000 students.

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.
