Sheriff: Shooting of Florida high school student 'intentional'

Police say "active shooter protocols" saved students' lives as a gunman opened fire at a Florida high school, injuring one student in the ankle, in what is now the 20th school shooting in the USA this year.

Kevin Christian, the Marion County Public Schools public relations and communications officer, advised that parents should go to the First Baptist Church of Ocala at 2801 SE Maricamp Rd.to be with the students, he told Spectrum News.

Friday morning's protest, organised by students across the USA in an attempt to raise awareness on laws surrounding gun violence, was met with tragic circumstances as one of the young protestors was shot prior to the rally. Ham told reporters the shooter fired at the bottom of a classroom door, which was locked, and pellets struck the victim in the ankle.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office has obtained a temporary risk protection order on Bouche due to this incident.

"I didn't shoot anyone", he said to reporters.

The sheriff said the Bouche wasn't injured, wasn't fired at and was arrested without resistance. He said he later began having nightmares, which led him to carry out the shooting Friday.

"It doesnt make it better, anyway", he said.

"I shot through the door", he said, looking at a female reporter who asked about his connection to the student who had been shot.

During the first walkout which was held back in March, exactly one month after the Parkland shooting, Morgan Roof - the younger sister of Dylann Roof, who murdered nine people at a Charleston church in 2015 - was arrested after bringing weapons and guns to her high school in SC.

Bouche, in a jailhouse interview with the Ocala Star Banner, said that he bought the shotgun without a background check from a private seller online a week after the Parkland massacre. "He went right in", Wood said at a news conference.

"He's really shaken", a spokesperson said.

The Washington Post was unable to reach the teacher Saturday, but she told the Ocala Star Banner that her former student had been abused by his family and that this time, "he was done". "I really dont think he meant to shoot the gun. He just wanted someone to listen to him".

"Law enforcement has cleared the Forest High School campus", the sheriff's office reported on its Facebook page in the late afternoon.

There were no other reported injuries related to the shooting. "What happened down South nearly came here to Marion County", Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods said, referencing the deadly school shooting at Parkland on February 14.

One picture, which appears to have been taken from inside the school, showed a tangle of desks, chairs and books piled up against a door.
