Police and emergency personnel are responding to reports of an active shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida reports BNO News. Details are still sparse as the situation is currently unfolding.
On their official Twitter account, the Coral Springs Police Department urges locals to stay away from the high school. They also added that people should refrain from calling 911 unless they have an absolute emergency, presumably so responders can devote all of their resources to stopping the shooter.
AVOID AREA OF DOUGLAS HS for ACTIVE POLICE SCENE. Do not call 911 unless an emergency. Nothing further.
