Camila Mendes Mourns Victims of Parkland High School Shooting in Her Hometown

Camila Mendes is speaking out about the senseless tragedy that unfolded on Wednesday (February 14) as 17 people died in a horrific high school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The 23-year-old Riverdale star grew up in that same town.

“#Parkland used to be my home, my sister attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas when I was in elementary school there. It’s devastating that such a violent tragedy happened in a place that I’ve always considered safe, a place that I associate with such innocent, childhood memories,” she wrote on Twitter.

“My heart goes out to all the families who are grieving the loss of a loved one, and for all the survivors who have to live with the trauma.”
