The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School football team confirmed on Twitter that Aaron Feis was among the 17 people shot and killed Wednesday.

He spent his entire career at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, as a player and as a coach.

Here is what we know about the victims who have been identified by ABC News. I will remember your name forever, Aaron Feis. "He was a phenomenal man".

The school said Feis, who also worked as a security guard, was protecting students when he was gunned down.

Jim Gard, a math teacher at the school said, "We were told past year that he [Cruz] wasn't allowed on campus with a backpack on him. My two boys played for him", Israel said.

A football coach stepped in to use his body as a shield to protect a student during a high school massacre, it has been reported.

The tweet ends: "He died a hero and he will forever be in our hearts and memories".

Cruz and his brother, who had been adopted at birth by Lynda and Roger Cruz, had allegedly been living with a family friend in Palm Beach County after their adoptive mother died of pneumonia on November 1. "I know you're in a better place".

Her father, Fred Guttenberg, wrote on Facebook today, "My heart is broken".

A hero has emerged from the chaotic horror that continues to envelope a Florida high school community in the aftermath of Wednesday's deadly shooting. We lost our daughter and my son Jesse Guttenberg lost his sister. "He got shot by jumping on the guy, that's what I heard". "Hugs to all and hold your children tight".

Teacher Scott Biegel died while saving others, according to student Kelsey Friend.

Andrew Hofmann, a former student at the school who recently coached the swimming and water polo teams, told the Herald he was "a quiet person" with a good sense of humour.

"I never thought something like this could happen", Mackman, now 37, told ABC News in a telephone interview Thursday. "When he opened the door, he had to relock it so that we could stay safe, but he didn't get the chance", she told CNN. "Her life was taken way too soon and I have no words to describe how this feels".

Cruz, who was overnight charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder, reportedly left a comment on a YouTube video previous year stating: "I'm going to be a professional school shooter".

2017 National Merit Scholar semifinalist Carmen Schentrup was confirmed dead Thursday, hours after anxious family members posted to ask for information about her whereabouts.

Cruz was arrested by the Coconut Creek Police Department in a nearby neighborhood in Coral Springs.

A gunman, allegedly 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, killed at last 17 people.
