A Florida school resource officer is being praised for quickly confronting the gunman during a shooting at a high school that injured one student Friday. The wounded student, a 17-year-old boy, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury to his ankle.

The 19-year-old suspect, who is not a student at the school, now remains in custody. His age was not available and no charges were immediately announced.

The statement reads, "Yesterday we tragically lost two sheriff's deputies, Noel Ramirez and Taylor Lindsey, with the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office in a senseless act of violence and cowardice". Nikolas Cruz, 19, faces the death penalty if convicted in that Valentine's Day shooting.

"I'm angry, I'm sad, and I want to do something", he said.

Sky Bouche, the suspected shooter, is being cooperative and talking with investigations, the Marion County Woods said in a later press conference Friday afternoon. "We also started tying together some jackets to hang out the window, in case we needed another way out".
