CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire students at scores of high schools briefly walked out of their classrooms as part of a nationwide effort to respond to the deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Students from Lebanon High School, Londonderry High School, Nashua South High School and Exeter High School were among that took part in the 17-minute walkout — a minute each for each of the staff and staff killed in Florida. The rallies Wednesday were part of the #Enough National School Walkout to End Gun Violence and come in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Several of the more than a dozen schools that took part had received threats or reported incidents following the Florida shooting.
