(Global Times) A mass shooting in a Florida high school killed 17 people on Wednesday, local police said.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told the press that 12 were killed in the school building, two were killed outside the building, one on a road nearby and two died in hospital from wounds.

The shooting took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, just north of Miami. The school said the incident took place as the school was dismissing students.

The shooter was identified as Nikolaus Cruz, a 19-year-old expelled student at the school. He was captured shortly after the shooting. An AR-15 semi-automatic rifle was found at the site.

"My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school," US President Donald Trump said.

The incident took place as Parkland has recently been listed as one of the 10 safest cities in Florida.

Because of the hopelessness the lower 90% feel in the US and because of the 2nd amendment of an ancient constitution what was written before the invention of the
steam engine.
The US is really an oligarchy were the 3 riches people have as much wealth as the
lower 160,000,000 people.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

You aren't safe from being shot anywhere in the US.

The Gun Violence Archive, which tracks reports of mass shootings -- defined as incidents where four or more people are shot, not including the shooter -- reports there have been 30 mass shooting incidents so far in 2018, including today's in Florida.

So instead of looking into mirror and doing something about it, you think it is ok for poor people to go shooting other poor people.

I never said that. Where do you come up with such nonsense?

The OP asked why shootings were so rampant in the US and I gave two major reasons.
