Tuesday afternoon, news broke of a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida.

Currently, authorities have reported 14 victims from the shooting. As the incident unfolded, which happened as school was letting out, students inside the school began posting videos and tweeting.

One particular student documented his experience during the shooting on Twitter.

Another video, posted to Instagram, showed the actual shooting unfolding. The video was originally posted by CBS News before being removed.

Another showed a SWAT team rescuing students.

Video in a now-deleted tweet also showed what appears to be a person in a pool of blood with the hashtag #Pray4Douglas.

Students also filmed as they were being evacuated from the school.

Police in Broward County said that a suspect, identified as Nikolas Cruz, is in custody.
