Sheriff: Shooting of Florida high school student 'intentional'

A suspect was taken into custody Friday following a shooting at a high school in central Florida, authorities said.

In Washington, students from area high schools planned to rally at the White House today and march on Congress to demand action on gun control from legislators.

The shooting took place in the school's main building, according to Marion County Public Schools.

Bouche, a former student, carried a shotgun in a guitar case into the school by blending in with students, said Craig Ham, deputy superintendent of Ocala schools operations.

"It's a shame what society has come to in that we even have to be here on a school campus", Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods said to a throng of reporters "Society has changed since I was in school".

The suspect, a 19-year-old non-student, is in custody and one person is injured, according to deputies. On Valentine's Day this year, 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fla.

Students across the country participated in the National School Walkout on Friday, which marks the 19th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School. The boy told Oliver the shooter was standing in a hallway and fired at a closed classroom door.

Woods praised the quick response by Long, as well as school personnel and first responders.
