There have been "numerous fatalities" and at least 14 people injured in a shooting at a Florida high school، Sky News reported.

The attack began at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland، northwest of Fort Lauderdale، just before 3pm on Wednesday afternoon، local time.

The school، which has around 3،000 students، was placed on a "code red" lockdown and television footage later showed dozens of people running and walking away from the school.

Some were seen being placed in ambulances، while others were being treated at the scene.

Broward Country Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie confirmed: "There are numerous fatalities.

"It's a horrific situation."

The sheriff's office said: "So far we have at least 14 victims.

"Victims have been and continue to be transported to Broward Health Medical Center and Broward Health North hospital."

Florida senator Bill Nelson said there was a "number of fatalities"، citing a conversation with the superintendent of schools.
