  • Sheriff: Shooting of Florida high school student 'intentional'

Forest High School students were evacuated to the First Baptist Church of Ocala, where their parents picked them up.

One student was injured in a school shooting on Friday morning.

Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods said Long heard a loud bang about 8:39 a.m. and immediately rushed to the source of the sound.

"We're very glad that no lives were lost", she said of the Ocala shooting.

Long "did not hesitate".

Although organizers of Friday's walkout expect students at around 2,500 schools nationwide to participate, overall turnout is expected to be smaller than a similar event staged March 14, on the one-month anniversary of the Parkland shooting. When asked what he'd say to the victim or his family, Bouche added, "Sorry".

"What happened down south nearly came here to Marion County, and they need to stop", Woods said at Friday's press conference.

His attack also came 19 years to the day since the Columbine High School attack which marked a shift in violence in America's high schools. Nikolas Cruz, 1 9, faces the death penalty if convicted from that valentine's shooting.

The shooting happened as students around the country walked out of class to protest gun violence on the anniversary of the massacre at Colorado's Columbine High School.




Almost six in 10 said they were anxious about the possibility of a shooting happening at their school-and most parents shared that concern. Once inside school grounds, Bouche entered a bathroom and put on a tactical vest and gloves to prepare himself for the shooting.

Woods and school officials said the resource officer's quick response and active shooter protocols at the school helped save lives.

Bouche said he doesn't believe he should have a gun.

The Ocala Star Banner newspaper said one student shot another in the ankle.

The shooter then dropped his weapon, ran, and tried to hide, according to the boy's account.

He fired a single shot into a door, hitting a 17-year-old boy in the foot.

Students used desks and chairs to barricade themselves in their classrooms.

"I was just thinking of some of the kids and teachers I knew at that still went to Forest, and about the walkout that was happening this morning", Delgrego said. "We also started tying together some jackets to hang out the window, in case we needed another way out".
