Ocala school shooting suspect now charged with terrorism

Student shot at Florida high school by another student

The injured 17-year-old student, who was shot in the ankle, was in good condition at a hospital with a wound not considered life threatening, officials said.

"And then immediately at 8:42 he was immediately on scene and engaged the activity that was gong on, recognized what we had at that time, and then found the victim", the sheriff told reporters, "and then within that same timeframe he engaged the shooter". He also allegedly told police after his arrest that he had originally planned on carrying out some type of shooting on April 13 - Friday the 13th - but "chose to target a school because he thought it would gather more media attention".

"Marion County does everything to protect their children".

Sky Bouche is accused of shooting a student at Forest High School Friday morning.

The former student told investigators he then walked out of the bathroom and passed a female student who didn't notice him walk by, so he fired a round into a door and struck the 17-year-old boy in the ankle, the report said.

Sky Bouche, the suspected shooter, is being cooperative and talking with investigations, the Marion County Woods said in a later press conference Friday afternoon.

Bouche, who said he "could've kept going", threw down the gun and surrendered to a teacher.

"It's not anger, it's not hatred, it's an adrenaline rush that, you know, I'm about to do something".

At around 8:39 a.m., a school resource officer heard a "loud, bang sound".

Approximately 2,200 students attend Forest High School.

The sheriff said Bouche was arrested without resistance. "What happened down South nearly came here to Marion County", Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods said, referencing the deadly school shooting at Parkland on February 14.

After the shooting and a lockdown to confirm that there was only one gunman, the students were bussed to First Baptist Church of Ocala where their parents were able to pick them up. Ocala police, the sheriff's office, the Florida Highway Patrol and the FBI were investigating.

School walkouts were canceled districtwide in Marion County after the shooting, according to school board member Nancy Stacy.
