A school shooter entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High (MSD) School and opened fire with a long rifle. Within approximately 7 minutes, 34 people were killed or injured. The Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department, Coral Springs Police Department (CSPD), and the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) would be among the first of multiple emergency responding agencies arriving to asses and mitigate the incident.
