The 17 victims of the Florida high school shooting

Seventeen people were killed Wednesday when a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, opened fire on the building.

They included the school’s athletic director, an ROTC student and a geography teacher who blocked a door to keep students safe, according to the Associated Press.

The suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, confessed Thursday to shooting students and staff, according to a report from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. Cruz was charged with 17 counts of murder earlier today.
