A second Parkland, Fla., high school shooting survivor has reportedly committed suicide.

The Miami Herald reported Coral Springs police confirmed Sunday the “apparent suicide” of a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student. The death occurred Saturday night, the news outlet reported.

The Herald, citing unnamed sources, reported the student was a male sophomore; his name hasn't been released.

The death comes a week after high school graduate Sydney Aiello kllled herself with a gunshot to the head after being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the Herald reported.

Former Stoneman Douglas high school student David Hogg, who became a gun control advocate after the Feb. 14, 2018, mass slaying that killed 17 people, lamented the inaction of the school and government.

“RIP 17+2, he tweeted. “How many more kids have to be taken from us as a result of suicide for the government/ school district to do anything?”

Ryan Petty, whose daughter Alaina was among the slaughter victims, and who has since founded the suicide prevention Walk Up Foundation, told the Herald “the issue of suicide needs to be talked about. This is another tragic example.’

A CBS affiliate reported school, police and children’s services officials were holding a public meeting at Parkland City Hall on Sunday afternoon.
