Local Douglas alumni reflect on school shooting

The FBI disclosed that it failed to follow up on a tip about the 19-year-old gunman who is alleged to have attacked a Florida high school on Wednesday, leaving 17 people dead and more than a dozen wounded.

Ben Bennight had also contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation about Cruz's Youtube account, said CNN, and he tried emailing screenshots of Cruz's Youtube account but had an invalid email address for them and ended up calling them. "The FBI conducted database reviews and other checks, but was unable to further identify the person who posted the comment", the agency said in a statement.

Stuart Kaplan, an attorney for the company, told reporters outside the store on Thursday that Cruz passed a background check including answering questions about his mental health. The BBC reports that teachers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the attack took place, had been warned by school authorities about Cruz, who was "not allowed on campus with a backpack".

All 17 charges of premeditated murder are listed out as well as confirmation that Cruz is being held without bond.

THE grieving mother of one of the tragic Florida school shooting victims demanded the US President to "do something" and change gun laws in an irate TV interview.

"I think everyone had in their minds if anybody was going to do it, it was going to be him", Mutchler said.

At one point during the vigil, some in the crowd began shouting, "No more guns!" Wearing a hospital gown, Cruz arrives at the Broward County sheriff's office and is taken inside. The people who were acquainted with Cruz said he was a disturbed teen who was alone, according to a report by ABC News. "But at the same time, it's inevitable that people are going to go insane because we live in an inherently sick society", he said, citing "hyper-egalitarianism" and feminism as some of society's ills. Executive Chief Public Defender Gordon Weekes said Cruz was under a suicide watch.

The school's students are now calling for gun control on Twitter and have reacted furiously to President Donald Trump's suggestion that the gunman's neighbours and classmates should have reported him earlier. "I said to him ' you need to get out of there'". "I don't know what I do next..." Her two daughters and son lost friends in Wednesday's shooting, she said.

Florida Governor Rick Scott said during a press conference Thursday that he would discuss increasing funding for mental illness services and keeping guns out of the hands of mentally ill with the Florida Legislature next week.

The accused shooter may have left warning signs on social media in the form of a comment on YouTube video that read "I'm going to be a professional school shooter". His father apparently died a few years ago.

Cruz had recently moved in with another family after his mother's November death, said Jim Lewis, a lawyer representing the family, bringing his AR-15 along with other belongings.

"Killing animals was no problem for this young man", said Rhonda Roxburgh, 45, who lived on the block for several years and whose parents continue to live there.

Two separate Instagram accounts, now deleted, purport to show Mr Cruz posing with guns and knives. She said he had been abusive to the girl.
