A graphic video shows students inside of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during a school shooting Wednesday in Parkland, Florida.


CBS News ran the video, which appears to be a snapchat taken on a cell phone. Gunfire can be heard in the background, while the video shows students lying on the floor of a classroom and screaming. One student yells, “oh my god” as loud shots ring out multiple times.

Authorities have reportedly apprehended the suspect, who has been described as a young white male wearing a burgundy shirt. The suspect is believed to be a student at the school and is said to have pulled the school’s fire alarm to encourage students to leave their classrooms.
