    Carnage at Florida school: expelled student opens fire and kills at least 17

    Live footage showed emergency workers who appeared to be treating the wounded on sidewalks.

    Police said a former student opened fire at a Florida high school on Wednesday, killing at least 17 people and sending scores of students fleeing into the streets in the nation's deadliest school shooting since a gunman attacked an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. The shooter, who was equipped with a gas mask and smoke grenades, set off a fire alarm to draw students out of their classrooms shortly before the school day ended, officials said.
