A number of eyewitnesses have shared on social media the story of assistant football coach and school security guard Aaron Feis.
Feis, a Douglas graduate, reportedly threw himself in front of students during the shooting.
"I mean my son's football coach died. I think the football coach jumped in front of someone and got killed and he's a nice guy," a witness said.
He was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. Thursday morning, the Douglas football team tweeted that coach Feis passed away overnight.

Chris Hixon, the school's athletic director, is also among those shot, the Sun Sentinel reports.
No details of Hixon's condition have been released.
The parents of 18-year-old Meadow Pollack said that their daughter isn't answering her phone.
"No one knows where she is. We're all sick over this and just praying," Meadow's father said.
Nick Dworet, 17, is also missing.
Dworet is a talented swimmer, who just one week ago, made his college plans official, signing on national signing day to swim collegiately at the University of Indianapolis.
