(KUTV) - The LDS Church identified two of its members are among the victims in the mass school shooting that occurred Wednesday in south Florida.

Alaina Petty, 14, was killed and Madeleine Wilford, 17, was seriously injured by gunman Nicolas Cruz in his shooting rampage that killed 17 people.

The two teens are members of the Coral Springs ward of the Coral Springs Florida Stake, the Church said.

"Once again we find ourselves as a nation and as communities faced with a tragic loss of life and incomprehensible sorrow following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. Among the many injured or killed were two members of our faith. To all of the victims and their loved ones, we extend our love. These are hours filled with grief, emptiness and a terrible sense of loss. We unite our prayers with millions of others who are mourning and praying for them."
