Authorities responded to an active shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland around 2:30 p.m. More than an hour later, just after 4 p.m., the Broward County Sheriff’s Office announced on Twitter that a suspect had been apprehended, adding that the scene was still active, NBC News reported.

Broward County Public Schools said on Twitter that the sound of gunfire broke out shortly before school was dismissed for the day, and that it received reports of “multiple injuries.”

CBS Miami, citing the Margate Fire Department, reported that 20 to 40 people may be injured.
