  • The victims. The BBC profiles the 14 students and three staffers killed in the mass shooting. They range in age from 14 to 49. At least 12 others were wounded, seven of them critically, authorities say.
  • Cruz failed to shoot out windows. State Sen. Bill Galvano says that when he visited the school Thursday, officers showed him where Cruz had tried and failed to shoot out third-floor windows, apparently to fire at fleeing students, the AP reports. He says police told him Cruz could have easily just opened the windows, and "Thank God he didn't."
  • Gun shop owners "distraught." Authorities say Cruz legally purchased a year ago the AR-15 rifle used in the shooting at the Sunrise Tactical Supply gun shop in Coral Springs. A lawyer for the owners says they are "distraught" and have closed the store indefinitely. "The tremendous sense of responsibility in this situation and just horribleness that they feel that one of their weapons fell into the hands of this maniac," tells the Miami Herald.
