The victims of the deadly shooting at a South Florida high school on Feb. 14 were revealed one day after the incident took place.

The victims of the shooting, which was reportedly carried out by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, included both students and faculty at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Florida.

One of the victims, Jaime Guttenberg, died in the shooting and was honored on Facebook by having her profile changed to a memorial.

Another victim, 14-year-old Martin Duque, was a freshman at the high school and was memorialized by his brother, Miguel, on social media.

"Words can not describe my pain," Miguel Duque wrote. "I love brother Martin you’ll be missed buddy. I know you’re in a better place."

Nicholas Dworet, a 17-year-old senior who died in the shooting, was remembered by her friend Alex -- the niece of a local reporter who quoted her in a story.

"I don’t think it has sunken in yet that you are gone forever," Alex said, Business Insider reported. "My heart is in pieces after hearing this news."

"On February 14, we had class together earlier in the day. ‘See you tomorrow,’ you said as you walked out. But I won’t see you tomorrow, or next week, or next month. We walked into kindergarten together, so knowing that you won’t be walking across the stage at graduation with me in a few months is devastating and heartbreaking. Rest in peace and fly high Nick."

Carmen Schentrup, a 16-year-old student, was remembered by her cousin Matt Brandow in a Facebook post.

"With a very heavy heart, my beloved cousin Carmen just passed away in the Parkland high school shooting today," Brandow wrote.

"Rest In Peace Carmen, you were the smartest and most intelligible 16 year old I’ve ever met! You will be remembered forever."

Another student who died in the shooting was Meadow Pollack, an 18-year-old who was first reported missing before being confirmed as one of the dead. Her family, Business Insider reported, was initially concerned because she wasn't answering her phone.

Geography teacher Scott Beigel also died in the shooting, and was trying to save students when he was shot.

"When he opened the door, he had to relock it so that we could stay safe, but he didn’t get the chance," student Kelsey Friend told CNN, Business Insider reported.

"Thank you for bringing and having this amazing person in life and giving him the power to be stronger than I could have ever been."

Football coach Aaron Feis also died in the incident. Feis was a security guard who had been coaching for the school since 2002.

The school's athletic director, 49-year-old Chris Hixon, was also killed in the shooting -- and remembered as a "super human being, the kind of person who would do anything for anyone," according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Other victims of the attack who were injured include Ben Wikander, a student who was shot three times and taken to surgery at a hospital near the school. Maddy Wilford, a student and basketball player at the school, was also shot a number of times and had to undergo three surgeries as of the morning after the shooting.

Several people remain missing following the attack, Business Insider reported.

Nikolas Cruz, the alleged gunman, who was captured alive and arrested, reportedly "threatened to bring the guns to school multiple times" and "threw jokes around that he'd be the one to shoot up the school," senior Eddie Bonilla told NBC News.
