17-year-old student shot during anti-gun violence walkout in Florida

The suspect, 19-year-old Sky Bouche, was quickly taken into custody by the school resource officer, Marion County Sheriff's Deputy James Long, officials said.

Marion County schools Superintendent Heidi Maier decided weeks ago that any students who walked out would be punished.

One 17-year-old student was injured and has been hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 19-year-old non-student suspect was confronted by the school resource officer within three minutes of the 8:39 shooting.

The school is now on lockdown until the campus is cleared. Authorities said there was no shooting at any other Marion County school, but all schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution. The Sheriff's Office has the weapon, a Marion County Sheriff's spokesperson said.

During the first walkout which was held back in March, exactly one month after the Parkland shooting, Morgan Roof - the younger sister of Dylann Roof, who murdered nine people at a Charleston church in 2015 - was arrested after bringing weapons and guns to her high school in SC.

The Ocala shooting comes more than two months since the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and teachers were killed.
