The killer fired his AR-15 at them on that terrible afternoon at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and they survived.

One lived after her friend, who would be killed, urged her to use a book to block the shots. Another was shot as he used his body to hold the door shut against Cruz. Others were hit as they crouched in classrooms and Cruz fired shot after shot through locked doors.

A complete list of the wounded from the Parkland school shooting was released for the first time Wednesday, as part of the indictment of Nikolas Cruz for murder and attempted murder.

The indictment, handed up by a grand jury in Fort Lauderdale, charges Cruz with 17 counts of premeditated first-degree murder and 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder in the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Although authorities have previously said the number of wounded stood at 16, the indictment lists 17 victims of attempted murder and said all had been shot.

Injuries ranged from bullet grazes to multiple gunshot wounds, with some victims released from the hospital within hours and others remaining there for weeks.

Samantha Fuentes ,18, was shot multiple times in both legs and sustained shrapnel wounds to her legs and face. Daniela Menescal, 17, was shot in the back and leg, after Cruz entered her classroom and opened fire, killing two students.

Alexander Dworet, 15, whose brother Nicholas was killed by Cruz, was grazed on the back of the head by a bullet.

Isabel Chequer, a junior, suffered two bullet wounds but was among the first released from the hospital.

“They were non-life-threatening,” her father, Amin Chequer, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Wednesday. “She was home by 9 or 10 that night.”

Stacey Lynn Lippel, 50, a language arts teacher, was grazed in the arm by a bullet inside the 1200 building. Lippel, of Coral Springs, told ABC News that she was teaching a creative writing class when she heard a “barrage of bullets” in the hallway, followed by a fire alarm. Lippel unlocked her classroom door as students flooded in. Lippel says she caught a glimpse of the shooter, and immediately locked the door behind her.

Samantha Grady’s friend, Helena Ramsay, urged her to hold up a book to deflect the bullets, as Cruz fired through the locked door of their classroom. Samantha, a junior, said it may have saved her life, allowing her to escape with superficial wounds. Her friend was killed.

Madeleine Wilford, a 17-year-old junior and player on Stoneman Douglas’ girls basketball team, was shot three times, the bullets piercing her chest, torso and right arm. After being listed in critical condition at Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, Wilford recovered, and doctors released her from the hospital on Feb. 24.

President Donald Trump visited her in the hospital days after the shooting. A GoFundMe campaign titled “Support for Missy and Maddy,” created on behalf of Wilford and her mother, Missy, had reached its fundraising goal of $70,000 on Monday.

Anthony Borges, 15, is credited with saving the lives of 20 students, holding his ground in doorway by using his body as a barricade.

He was shot five times. He was struck twice in his right leg, once in his left leg and twice in his torso, Anthony’s attorney, Alex Arreaza, said.

“By the grace of God, he’s not No. 18,” Arreaza said. “But it’s going to be a tough recovery. … It’s a miracle that we’re even talking about recovery.”

The soccer club FC Barcelona sent a signed team jersey to the student, who spent two months playing at Barcelona's youth academy near Fort Lauderdale in 2016. Borges and his parents told Broward County Administrator Bertha Henry that the family intends to sue Broward County Public Schools, Marjory Stoneman Douglas’ principal and its school resource officer over the shooting.

Another wounded student who plans to sue is Kyle Laman, 15. He said Cruz looked him right in the eye before he started shooting, hitting him in the ankle and foot as he dove to the floor.

The remaining names on the list of wounded: Ashley Baez, Justin Colton, Marian Kabachenko, Kheshava Managapuram, Samantha Mayor, William Olson, Genesis Valentin and Benjamin Wikander.

A student who was shot five times is still struggling for life:

A teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School says her student, shooting survivor Anthony Borges, has taken a turn for the worse and has been returned to a hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

The 15-year-old was shot five times during the Feb. 14 rampage that killed 17 students and teachers and has been hospitalized since then.

In a Twitter posting Wednesday night, teacher Marilyn Rule asked people to pray for Borges — indicating he “is back in ICU on a ventilator.” Borges had emergency surgery Wednesday and had another operation scheduled for today, Rule’s posting said.

Borges is being hailed a hero after he used his body to barricade a classroom door during the shooting, saving at least 20 lives.

His family was the first to announce their intent to file a lawsuit against Broward County officials stemming from the tragedy.

How f*ucking awful! This kid put himself between others and the shooter, he was thinking of someone other then himself. That is so damn rare in most kids this day in age. I hope he pulls through. Sad

A survivor of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has been placed in a medically-induced coma due to an infection.

Fifteen-year-old Anthony Borges is now recovering after doctors found an infection in his intestinal tract and had to perform unscheduled surgery to remove a section of the intestines, according to his attorney. Despite the setback, doctors said Borges’ prognosis is good, according to Borges’ attorney.



Let's hope he continues to improve.  I love you

There were many heroes that stepped up on the tragic day of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting, essentially making sure that the already horrible death toll number wouldn't be worse. One particular hero, 15-year-old Anthony Borges, braved multiple gunshot wounds while shielding his fellow students.

Following the day's tragic events, Borges went through a tumultuous rollercoaster ride while in the hospital, undergoing several abdominal surgeries. He even had to be rushed to the intensive care unit after his condition deteriorated. However, there is hopeful news. According to the Sun Sentinel this week, Borges's condition has been upgraded from critical to fair.

Family lawyer Alex Arreaza confirmed Borges has been removed from a ventilator and is thankfully breathing on his own.

“Everything went fine,” Arreaza said. “He’s doing much better.”

Still, Arreaza said that Borges has an extended recuperation period ahead of him.
