The shooting in Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in which 17 students were killed and more than a dozen injured, appeared to be one of the deadliest cases of mass shooting since 1966 in the country. The attack was reportedly carried out by a 19-year-old boy, a former student who was expelled on disciplinary grounds.
While the attack in the school is the first this year in Florida, however, it is the 18th case in less than two months in the United States, as per data released by Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control advocacy organization. It is also the ninth deadliest case in terms of the worst mass shootings in the history of United States.
