PARKLAND, Fla. (WSAZ) -- A former head football coach at Hurricane High School, who now works at the school in South Florida where the deadly mass shooting happened Wednesday, is safe.

Willis May, known to many as "Peanut," is originally from Logan County, West Virginia.

After the shooting Wednesday, which has claimed 17 lives, May's son tweeted that his dad is OK:

"For all my Hurricane people . . . Me and Jordan are home and he is locked in his office safe. Thank you for the prayers and concerns.”

May coached the Hurricane Redskins from 2004 to 2011.

The Stoneman Douglas football team lost assistant coach Aaron Feis, who died while protecting students from the shooter, and athletic director Chris Hixon.
