2 Killed in Fla. School Parking Lot

May 29, 1998

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) _ Two people were shot to death in the parking lot of Stranahan High School just before classes started Friday, police said.

An unidentified male waited for a woman teacher to drive into the lot before shooting her and then himself, WSVN-TV reported.

Both people were dead at the scene, said a police communications supervisor who asked that her name not be used.

Police and fire-rescue crews were called at 7:29 a.m., six minutes before the first bell of the day at the 2,100-student public school.

``All of the kids are fine and they’re in class,″ said school receptionist Florence Bestman.

The deaths mark the latest in a national wave of fatal school shootings.
