Still another school shooting in Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida

It seems that Wikipedia that earlier gave more information on the suspected shooter Nikolas de Jesus Cruz.
 "At approximately 2:40 p.m. EST on February 14, 2018, a mass shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in the Miami metropolitan area. At least 17 people were killed and 14 others were hospitalized. The alleged shooter is in custody of the Broward County Sheriff's Office. He was taken to a local hospital before being incarcerated.[5] The mass shooting is among the deadliest in modern U.S. history.[6]"

Update: March 7th, 2018: It seems that this shooting has finally gotten some of our young people to respond wi†h their own "never again" reaction and I hope †hey will stick to their own guns (no pun intended!) and continue to oppose the NRA and the do-nothing pols in Congress who hope the whole thing goes away.
