WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — In the hours and morning after a mass shooting at a Colorado grocery store that killed 10 people, including a police officer, some parents of the Parkland school shooting victims voiced their thoughts on social media.

Fred Guttenberg, Manuel Oliver, Max Schachter and Ryan Petty lost their children in the Valentine's Day 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Park. Since then, they've become champions of stricter gun laws.

Broward County school board member Lori Alhadeff, whose daughter was killed in the Parkland shooting, hasn't posted anything from her own Twitter account, but she did retweet several posts about the tragedy in Boulder.

One such tweet was from Dr. Jaclyn Schildkraut, a criminologist and national expert on mass shootings.

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was also killed in Parkland, retweeted the same post that Alhadeff shared from the Boulder Police Department.

Pollack didn't share his own thoughts on the shooting, although he did retweet some conservative viewpoints in the aftermath of the tragedy.
