Josh Gad reveals his friend’s son was killed in Florida shooting


Actor Josh Gad tragically revealed that one of the students killed in Wednesday's high school shooting in Florida was his friend's son.
"Last night, I received a text while I slept that our friend's son passed away from his gun shot wound," Gad tweeted Thursday morning. "My grief for this family and the many others knows no bounds. I'm so sorry this happened.
"I'm so sorry our leaders are worthless," the tweet continued. "I'm so sorry we are bound to repeat this again."

Gad, 36, is from Hollywood, Fla., which is located about 30 miles away from Parkland, the town where the shooting occurred. At least 17 people were killed after 19-year-old gunman Nikolas Cruz entered his former school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and opened fire on students and faculty members.
Gad had tweeted Wednesday night that his friend's son, who he did not identify, was in critical condition after getting shot in the chest.
In a series of tweets since the shooting, Gad condemned the gun laws in America.
"I am so angry tonight. I am so sad," Gad tweeted Wednesday evening. "I'm putting my phone down because we are debating sensible gun laws again. A child of one of our friend's has a bullet in his chest & is critical condition because a 19 year old had access to a military weapon. Pretend it's normal. It's not."

He also shared a tweet from a 16-year-old girl from Parkland who criticized President Trump, who tweeted after the attack that he was sending his "prayers and condolences" to the shooting victims' families.
"My friends and teachers were shot," wrote the girl, who only goes by Sarah on Twitter. "Multiple of my fellow classmates are dead. Do something instead of sending prayers. Prayers won't fix this. But Gun control will prevent it from happening again."
