Accused gunman confessed to Florida high school shooting, police say

Accused gunman confessed to Florida high school shooting, police say

"Cruz stated that he was the gunman who entered the school campus armed with a AR-15 and began shooting students that he saw in the hallways and on the school grounds", according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office booking report obtained by BuzzFeed News.

A person with his name wrote a comment past year under a YouTube video that read "I'm going to be a professional school shooter". "He came up to me later on the day and apologized for what he said". "I never had any problems", Gard said. At the press conference, Agent Rob Lasky said the agency did a database review but couldn't determine the time, location or true identity of the person making the comment.

"All he would talk about is guns, knives, and hunting", Joshua Charo, 16, a former classmate told the Miami Herald. "Thank you for bringing and having this unbelievable person in life and giving him the power to be stronger than I could have ever been", she said in an opportunity to address his family on air. "The gunman, a insane person, just walks right into the school knocks down the window of my child's door and starts shooting, shooting her and killing her".

While Olvera said Cruz was abusive toward an ex-girlfriend, others said he was a loner. Investigators said he slipped away during the chaos by mixing in with the other students. "I will heal you.' We trust in that promise and we hold fast to our fellow Americans and their time of sorrow". The couple adopted Nikolas and biological brother, Zachary, after they moved from Long Island to Broward County. An arrest affidavit says Cruz has confessed to the shootings. He did have the key, however. Many have argued that stricter gun legislation would have made it impossible for a troubled 19-year-old like Nikolas to ever get his hands on a semi-automatic rifle like the AR-15 used in the attack.

It has shocked the local community in Parkland.

In an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, an attorney for the family that had taken Cruz in for the past few months said Cruz was "depressed" following his mother's death but he had been going to therapy.

The ADL said a spokesperson for the white nationalist group Republic of Florida (ROF) reported that Cruz was associated with his group.

Local authorities said Thursday they are not aware of any ties that Cruz had to militia groups.

Scott Israel, sheriff of Broward County, where the shooting took place, urged legislators to give police greater authority to bring people who post graphic and disturbing content on social media involuntarily to mental health professionals for evaluation.
