FILE - In this March 24, 1998 file photo, officials examine the scene at Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Ark. after two boys fired on teachers and students. The two boys with stolen guns took aim from a wooded hill, waiting for people to evacuate after one of the boys had triggered a false fire alarm. They killed four children and a teacher.

So there was confusion Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018 when a fire alarm sounded, the second one that day, at a Florida high school as former student Nikolas Cruz unleashed a barrage of gunfire. Head for the exits or hunker down in classrooms? (Leigh Daughtridge/The Commercial Appeal via AP)
