The 19-year-old suspect in a deadly rampage at a Florida high school is being booked into jail after being questioned for hours by state and federal authorities.

Television footage showed the man being escorted by sheriff's deputies from the Broward Sheriff's headquarters to the county jail in Fort Lauderdale early Thursday morning.

Seventeen people were killed as gunfire erupted at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School just before classes ended Wednesday afternoon.

The suspect was captured in a quiet neighbourhood about two miles from the school. Sheriff's officials said in an email that he was initially taken to a hospital for laboured breathing before being questioned at sheriff's headquarters.

Counsellors are being made available for students, teachers and staff, but the school will remain closed as an investigation continues.
