Sheriff's Office Reports 'At Least 14 Victims' In South Florida High School Shooting

Family members watch a rescue vehicle pass by on Wednesday, in Parkland, Fla. A shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School school sent students rushing into the streets as SWAT team members swarmed in and locked down the building.

Updated at 4:35 p.m. ET

The Broward County, Fla., school superintendent Robert Runcie, says there are fatalities in the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the city of Parkland, northwest of Fort Lauderdale.

In a tweet, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said there are "at least 14 victims." He did not specify whether they are injured, dead, or some combination of the two.

The school was locked down as some students were escorted outside while others were being advised to remain barricaded inside.

Authorities have not determined a motive for the shooting.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott as well as President Trump have been told about the shooting.
