Ayub Ali, the father of student activist Elama Ali, who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, was shot and killed during a robbery on Tuesday at his convenience store, CNN reports.

The big picture: Ali and other students at the high school took up activism after nearly losing their lives to a shooter who claimed the lives of 17. Just months later, Ali has lost her father to the same violence she and her peers had been campaigning to end.
