Among those who tried to save students was football coach Aaron Feis, who died after apparently using his body as a shield against the bullets.

The suspected gunman, a 19-year-old expelled student, has been arrested.

This is America's 18th school shooting this year and third deadliest ever.

Video has emerged that shows students cowering in a classroom as loud rapid shots are heard nearby.

President Trump has extended his condolences to the families and victims.
