While the mood throughout south Florida remains somber following the shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. on Valentine’s Day, credit unions throughout Broward County are rallying behind the school community and the victims’ families whose hearts have been broken.

Police said the 19-year-old suspect in Florida, Nikolas Cruz, used an AR-15 rifle that killed 14 students, a teacher, a football coach and an athletic director. The gunman also injured 14 more, according to national media reports. Investigators described the suspect as a troubled teenager who posted disturbing material on social media and had been expelled from the high school for “disciplinary reasons,” the Associated Press reported.
