Florida Shooting


Bayann Jaber, Journalist

On February 14th, a tragedy occured that will never be forgotten killing 17 innocent people. Nikolas Cruz,19, went to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School carrying a black duffel bag with loaded weapons. He arrived at the highschool at 2:19 p.m and then pulled out a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle. Cruz shot five classrooms in the freshman hall, and after his shooting spree he went outside blending in with the other students, who were terrified for their lives .


After leaving Douglas High, Cruz walked to Walmart, Subway, and Mcdonalds before he was finally arrested while walking down a street at 3:41 p.m.


A tragedy like this one will forever change the victim’s families and friends, Douglas High, and all of Florida. I hope for a reform in gun laws to prevent other incidents and tragedies.
