  • One student was injured in a school shooting

On Friday, at Forest High School in Ocala, FL, students built towering barricades against their classroom doors as a school shooter roamed the halls.

Today's Florida shooting happened just before schools across the country got ready to participate in the national walkout day against gun violence.

Once on school grounds, the 19-year-old donned a tactical vest and gloves inside a campus bathroom - before firing one round through a classroom door, which wounded a 17-year-old student.

The Sheriff's Office for Marion County said a 19-year-old suspect had been taken into custody at Forest High School in Ocala, Florida, where a 17-year-old student had been injured.

After the shooting and a lockdown to confirm that there was only one gunman, the students were bussed to First Baptist Church of Ocala where their parents were able to pick them up.

Suspect Sky Bouche said that he was while being headed by officers, sorry. The sheriff's office posted video on Facebook of Bouche being led from the school. "I want to be put away where I can't hurt anybody", said Bouche. Deputy Long is a dedicated school resource officer who also joined me for the School Safety Roundtable I called following the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

"It's a shame what society has come to, and that we even have to be here on a school campus. I knew I needed to do something", Lane Murdock, a sophomore at Ridgefield High School in CT who helped organize the walkout, told ABC News.

His emotions were running rampant, since Woods spent from 3:30 p.m. Thursday until 10 p.m. Thursday with his fellow sheriff in Gilchrist County, where two deputies were killed for absolutely no reason.

Bouche faces eight charges, including terrorism, aggravated assault with a firearm, culpable negligence, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a firearm on school property, possession of short-barreled shotgun, interference in a school function and armed trespassing on school property.

The sheriff said the suspect was not injured, was not fired at, and was arrested without resistance.
