A second survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, has died of suicide, according to police.
The Miami Herald reported that a current student died Saturday night in “an apparent suicide.” Authorities confirmed the death Sunday.
Coral Springs police spokesman Tyler Reik told the Miami Herald the student was a juvenile. Authorities have not identified the student further.
About a week earlier, Sydney Aiello, another survivor of the shooting, died of suicide earlier this month. Aiello recently graduated from the Parkland, Florida, high school.
Seventeen people were murdered when a gunman opened fire as classes ended for the day on Feb. 14, 2018. The gunman, Nikolas Cruz, is charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.
Police are still investigating the death.
