Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq strongly condemned terror attack on children.

Police say Cruz opened fire with a semi-automatic weapon at Florida high school Wednesday, killing 17 people, injuring 15 and sending hundreds of students fleeing into the streets.

People who knew suspected Broward County, Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz said the warning signs were there for quite some time before Wednesday's massacre.

The shooter had already had "a lot of problems", Coke said, recalling an incident during middle school when Cruz kicked out a window.

Television footage showed students coming out of the school building, many with hands raised in the air, as dozens of police and emergency services personnel swarmed the area.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office tweeted that 17 people had been shot dead by the gunman. "I was only there for two years, but I felt safe in that school every day I was there and to see something like that happen to those kids and those teachers, it sucks", Gostisbehere told Action News reporter Jamie Apody.

He was charged later in the day with 17 counts of premeditated murderafter being questioned for hours by authorities following the deadliest school shooting in the United States in five years.

Israel also added that the suspect had many magazines with him and an AR-15 rifle with him when he was arrested.

"I think everyone had in their minds if anybody was going to do it, it was going to be him", she said. Two died from their injuries at the hospital. News about shooting broke out at around 3 pm in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. He surrendered to the cops without any struggle.

Israel says investigators are dissecting the suspect's social media posts and found material that is "very, very disturbing".

Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel Romualdez said the Filipino community in Parkland has 2,800 members. He said: "No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school".
