Wednesday's HOT MIC
Broward County Sherrif Scott Israel just addressed the media:
According to Israel, 17 people lost their lives in the attack -- 12 in the school building, two just outside the building, one was on the street, and two at the hospital. He declined to share theories about the shooter's motive and said he didn't know if any teachers were shot.
The attack began outside the school and then moved inside, according to Israel.
He identified Nikolas Cruz as the shooter and said he is in custody and authorities are investigating his background and social media activities, which Israel called "very, very disturbing." The 19-year-old was a former student at Douglas High School and had been expelled for disciplinary reasons. He was carrying an AR-15 with "multiple magazines."
"Continue, please, to pray for these victims and these families," Israel urged.
