Yesterday in Parkland, Flor., 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz allegedly walked into his old high school with an AR-15 and open fired.

17 people were shot and killed, and a multitude of other were injured.

At this point in time, police have reportedly identified all the victims and will be releasing their names later today.

Law enforcement is also investigating the troubled past of Cruz, whose adoptive mother had recently died and was living with friends.

This morning, President Trump gave a speech offering his condolences and support to the Parkland community and those affected by the shooting. The topic of gun control was not addressed, but the president did speak of actions needed in better addressing mental health disorders, and stated that school safety was now a top priority for his administration.

We get the latest from a Florida reporter and discuss Trump’s speech and its implications.
