    A shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday left at 17 people dead, CNN reports.

    The suspect has been identified as 19-year-old Nikolaus Cruz, a former student at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He was taken into custody off campus.

    He slipped out of the school after the shooting by blending in with other students who were trying to escape, two law enforcement sources and an eyewitness told ABC News.

    Authorities responded to an active shooter situation in the school around 2:30 p.m. Police said at around 4:00 p.m. that the suspect in the shooting was in custody.

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said the alleged shooter was taken into custody “without incident” and was “not a current student” at the school.

    A Jewish girl, Jamie Guttenberg, HY”D, has been identified as a victim in today’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.

    Her parents are Fred and Jennifer Guttenberg, their son Jesse, also a student at the school, thankfully made it home.

    Another Jewish Victim was being treated at a local hospital. Ben Wikander was shot three times and was having surgery at Broward North.

    President Donald Trump was briefed on the situation and tweeted, “My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.”

    Governor Rick Scott said on Twitter that he’d spoken to the Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, as well as other officials, in regards to the incident and will “continue to receive updates from law enforcement.”

      The behavior problem that led to the perpetrator being expelled from the school where he returned to take revenge, was NOT dealt with by anyone. Unless we finally recognize that inside human beings there is a killer program and until we finally stop putting lethal weapons into the hands of severely alienated, unloved and unloving, males and until we finally stop to violate G-d’s commandment “Thou Shalt Not Kill!” left and right with a media culture that still glorifies toxic male masculinity and a US defense budget of $ 10 Trillion since 9-11-01 – nothing will change.

      We can only have peace , if we realize that the painful reality we have created of a culture of death and killing, is in direct violation to the universal moral law. Here was a boy that was deeply alienated, who received NO therapeutic intervention at any point of his troubled developmental history, and whom all adults around him either abetted or ignored royally – this ending up in the final outcome of 17 innocent children and youth killed .

      The enormous pain of this and all other similar US mass shootings demands some fundamental soul searching: Do we want to build communities of consciousness where “choose life” is the imperative based on following the Universal Moral Law aka the law of Noah and obey G-d the Creator or do we want to continue behaving with our unconscious killer program running its course and justifying self-destruction in the name of “freedom” and “democracy”. 60000 ocycotin Opoid overdose victims accuse the Sackler family (billionaire profiteers of Purdue so-called pharma enterprise of mass-murder. The youth killed in US mass school shootings accuse the US gun lobby and the educational system of a failure to develop proactive intervention programs to assist “troubled” young men (suffering from alienation and from lack of a spiritual father figure to model to them what a real man looks like: a man who loves and who cares and provides guidance and clarity to his family and keeps his home clean from all evil influences) and intervene in their minds BEFORE thoughts and intentions become horrific actions. Let’s get to Ground Zero accept that we have missed the boat accepting the leadership of G-d and His commandments – choosing instead the instruments of brutality and death as our so-called right to bear arms. When in reality we need to demilitarize and promote a culture of Peace and closeness to G-d.

      Consolations to the hard-hit families of the 17 victims whose lives will never be the same again.
