It's not known if the gun that led to his departure is the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle authorities say he fired Wednesday afternoon in the hallways of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, leaving 14 students and three adults dead.

A sombre Donald and Melania Trump have visited some of the medial staff and law enforcement officials that responded to the horrific school shooting in Florida.

Hillary Clinton urged political action Friday in response to the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, pushing her Twitter followers to "remember these feelings in November, and VOTE".

A grieving mother who directed her anger at President Donald Trump on live television after the Florida school shooting isn't done shouting.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told Trump that action is needed on school violence.

Trump told the group he had met with a female survivor who had been shot four times, including in the lung, adding that quick first responders had saved her life.

I agree, but they should count with perspective. He included pictures of an injured young girl and her family that he and the first lady visited.

"We are committed to working with state and local leaders to help secure our schools, and tackle the hard issue of mental health", Trump wrote in an Instagram post alongside the picture. At least 17 died when a former student opened fire at the school in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday. The comment posted by a "Nikolas Cruz" said, "Im going to be a professional school shooter".

"This is a community and a state that is a deep pain and they want action to make sure this doesn't happen again", he said.

"I want you to know that you are never alone and you never will be", Trump said. I hope you do the same.

In more evidence that there had been signs of trouble with Cruz, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said his office had received more than 20 calls about him in the past few years.

Grief counselors offer support in the wake of Florida school shooting
Students who knew him described a volatile teenager whose odd behavior had caused others to end friendships with him. Twelve people were killed inside the school and two died outside, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said.

The agency said Friday that the tip should've been investigated thoroughly because it was a potential threat to life.

Instead, "no further investigation was conducted".

Mrs. Trump, for her part, thanked law enforcement officials "for taking care of our children" and added: "They were put through a lot in what they were experiencing two days ago and we need to take care of them". The governor called for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director to resign.

The gun that Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz used was bought legally about a year before the shooting.

Rubio also made brief remarks.

President Trump marveled at the speed with which first responders got victims to the hospital - but ignored shouted questions about whether guns should be more tightly regulated.

The five-point action plan includes pledging to vote according to candidates' positions on gun safety, letting leaders know the money they've taken from the National Rifle Association will determine one's vote, registering friends to vote, getting candidates to state their conditions on the record, and finally, running for office to become a champion for sensible gun laws.

In reacting to previous mass shootings, Trump has largely focused on mental health as a cause, dismissing questions about gun control.

Just this week- state lawmakers failed to pass a change to the age requirement to buy an AR-15- the rifle used in the Florida shooting.

It's not clear, however, whether Trump will visit the school itself, where some students and even the families of the slain teenagers have blamed his government's inaction on stricter gun control for the tragedy.
