'It's a Bad Day, Shepard': Sen. Bill Nelson Reacts to Florida School Shooting


Two students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. recounted what they saw as they evacuated the scene of the school shooting Wednesday.

One girl said she and some other students ran to a staircase then retreated to their classroom, as "multiple [gunshot] rounds" were heard.

"We stayed in there a for a long time," she said. "Then, the police came to the hallway to get us."

She said she saw a "big pile of blood" in a hallway as she escaped, and saw two purportedly deceased students lying nearby.

A second girl said her teacher did not let the students in her room leave when a fire alarm sounded, securing them in the classroom.

"I saw basically the same thing as her," she said of the first student to speak to reporters.

"There was bodies kind of just everywhere," she said. "I think there was four of them."

She said she consoled a friend who evacuated behind her as they left.

"I didn't want to look at anything," she said.
