There was a heavy police presence Monday morning at Olympic Heights High School in West Boca Raton, Florida as students walked out of class to protest gun violence after last week's shooting in Broward County.

Students walked out of class at about 9:30 a.m. and held signs saying "No More Silence, End Gun Violence" and shouted "we want change."
