These 17 innocent people were gunned down by a 19-year-old former student who entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, a small community just outside of the Everglades and north Coral Springs.

Through this senseless and heartbreaking tragedy, heroes emerged.

One victim, Aaron Feis, was a Douglas graduate and was an assistant football coach and a security guard at the school.

Feis shielded students from gunfire after he stepped in front of the gunman and reportedly told the children to run. Feis was shot several times and was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. Later that night, this brave man succumbed to his injuries.
