U.S. authorities say a 19-year-old gunman opened fire on February 14 at a Florida high school from which he had previously been expelled, killing 17 people before he was arrested by police. The violence erupted shortly before dismissal at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, about 70 kilometers north of Miami. Television footage showed students streaming out of the building as dozens of police and emergency services personnel swarmed the area. The alleged gunman -- identified as Nikolas Cruz -- surrendered to police without a struggle. (WSVN via AP)
