Another Parkland shooting survivor has taken their own life.

A male sophomore at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School died in an apparent suicide on Saturday night.

So far, the police have not named the latest victim.

His death came one week after classmate, Sydney Aiello, 19, committed suicide. Both died from gunshots to the head.

The latest suicide brings the death toll from the Valentine's Day 2018 attack to 19.

The massacre was carried out by former Stoneman Douglas student Nikolas Cruz, then 19, who confessed to being the gunman and was indicted on 17 counts of murder.

In the weeks after the carnage, grieving students launched a movement calling for more gun control.

Sadly, Sydney lost her best friend, Meadow Pollock, in the February 2018 attack.

She suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and "survivor's guilt," according to reports.

"It was devastating to bury another beautiful young person in Parkland today," Meadow's brother Hunter Pollock wrote on Twitter.

A GoFundMe page raising money for Sydney's funeral expenses surpassed $60,000 on Saturday.
