Video footage from students and staff have leaked onto the internet after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that is quite horrifying.
The videos depict bodies lying on the ground with blood everywhere, and frightened students hiding behind desks as gunman Nikolas Cruz shot and killed 17 people.
One image shows a young female’s lifeless body lying in her own blood in the middle of a classroom.
In another video, police are carrying another girl from the classroom followed by terrified students, crying as they follow the officer to safety.
Via Daily Mail: The students were forced to run through the blood-streaked halls to get outside the building, passing by several other lifeless bodies and discarded backpacks.
It is one of the many horrifying videos to emerge in the aftermath of the shooting massacre that shows the absolute terror that unfolded when the gunman stormed into the school armed with an assault rifle.
Unlike other school shootings in the past, these videos and images have put viewers directly inside the bloodied classrooms and hallways as gunfire rang out and terrified students screamed for help.
In footage taken by one student, the sound of gunfire echoed out across the room as ear-piercing screams rang out.
One male student can be heard screaming ‘Oh my God, oh my God. Oh my God,’ as other students rush for cover.
These kids were just a few of the dozens of students and teachers who urgently sought shelter from the gunfire as Cruz shot his way down the halls.
One Snapchat image shared by a student showed a classroom after taking gunfire: ‘There’s bullet holes in the f***ing computer.’
Students were filmed literally shaking with fear on one video as heavily armed police entered their classrooms and ordered them to put their hands up.
Several students shared detailed descriptions of what was happening in real time on social media as the shooter went classroom to classroom.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel revealed late on Thursday that Cruz had confessed to carrying out one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings and carried extra ammunition in his backpack.
During questioning Cruz told investigators he had multiple loaded magazines in a backpack he brought to the school, and kept them concealed until he was on campus.
According to police, he also said he there were ‘demon voices’ in his head that told him to carry out the attack.
Cruz shot up five classrooms, four of which were on the first floor and the fifth one being on the second floor, making the attack last for 3 minutes.
After he was done shooting, Cruz went up to the third floor leaving behind his AR-15 rifle and his bag filled with ammunition.
He then ran out of the building and attempted to blend in with fleeing students.
After the rampage, the suspect headed to a Wal-Mart and bought a drink at a Subway restaurant before walking to a McDonald’s. He was taken into custody about 40 minutes after leaving the McDonald’s.
