Why terrified Florida students live-streamed the mass shooting at their high school

A shaky video uploaded from inside the shooting in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Thursday shows about a dozen students crouched on the floor of a classroom hiding from an active shooter who ultimately killed 17 people. In the video, at least four of the students have their phones up recording as a SWAT team bursts through the door.

“Put away your phones!” one member of the SWAT team yells as the teens put their arms in the air.

This close-up view from inside a mass shooting has become more common as the country’s seemingly regular incidents of gun violence takes hold of a generation known for being glued to its phones.
