Broward Country Sheriff Scott Israel recently visited an injured student in the hospital after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

According to the Facebook post, Anthony Borges blocked the doorway to his classroom when the gunman was shooting in his school.

Borges was struck five times during the shooting, but survived. He is currently recovering from his injuries in a Florida hospital, but will have to undergo more surgeries in the near future.

This young man used his body to shield his classmates from the bullets during this mass shooting. What a HERO!

We will keep Anthony and all those affected by this terrible tragedy in our thoughts and prayers as we move forward.
