Khalil Herbert-Kansas Jayhawks-Florida-Douglas High School-Mass Shooting

Americans were stunned after the mass shooting at Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people were killed.

The tragedy hit close to home for many. Especially Kansas running back Khalil Herbert, who spent three years at Douglas High School prior to graduating from nearby American Heritage High School in Coral Springs, Fla., in 2016.

Herbert took to Twitter on Wednesday night, expressing thoughts and prayers for the victims, including football coach Aaron Feis, who reportedly died protecting students from gunfire.

“Please pray for my hometown and my old highschool! Prayers out to the victims, families and those affected/connected to this,” Herbert said on Twitter. “It doesn’t make any sense how this could happen I’m at an utter loss for words. Prayers to my old coach, Coach Feis #PrayForDouglas #DouglasStrong”

Kansas coach David Beaty also took to Twitter to extend thoughts and prayers to the victims as well.
