A second student who survived last year’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has apparently died by suicide, police confirmed.
The juvenile, whose name has not been released, died by an “apparent suicide” on Saturday night, Coral Springs police spokesman Tyler Reik told HuffPost. The deceased was a current student at the high school.
Detectives and the county medical examiner’s office are continuing to investigate the matter, Reik said.
The student’s death comes after the family of another survivor of the shooting, 19-year-old Sydney Aiello, confirmed Friday that she died by suicide after struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder and survivor’s guilt. The February 2018 shooting by a former student killed 17 people and injured over a dozen others.
Aiello had been close friends with Meadow Pollack, a Stoneman Douglas senior who was fatally shot during last year’s massacre.
