Trump suggests Fla. school shooting suspect was "mentally disturbed"

Trump suggests Fla. school shooting suspect was

After a teenager on Wednesday slaughtered at least 17 people in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., the share prices of gun manufacturers went up. Cruz and her husband, who died of a heart attack years ago, adopted Nikolas and his biological brother, Zachary, after the couple moved from Long Island in NY to Broward County. It is the deadliest school shooting since 26 people were killed in the Sandy Hook tragedy in 2012, and the sixth school shooting to take place in the U.S. in 2018 that has wounded or killed students. MORE: Timeline of how Florida high school shooting unfolded Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Broward County Sheriff Steve Israel provided an update on the investigation at a news conference.

Cruz was armed with an AR-15-style rifle and had multiple ammunition magazines when he surrendered to officers in a nearby residential area, police said.

Former classmate Eddie Bonilla told CBS Miami he knew Cruz before he got kicked out of school.

A survivor of Wednesday's Florida massacre hit out at President Donald Trump after the US leader offered his "prayers and condolences" to families of the victims of the high school shooting that left at least 17 adults and children dead.

The Broward Sheriff's Office is yet to release the identities of the other people who have died. He was arrested about two miles from the school shortly after the shooting and initially taken to a hospital with breathing problems.

President Donald Trump says in the wake of the Florida school shooting, his administration will tackle what he's calling "the hard issue of mental health".

"I did know he really did like guns a lot, but I didn't think he would cause such tragedy", he added.

President Donald Trump is postponing a campaign rally next week in Pennsylvania because of Wednesday's school shooting in Florida.

Jim Lewis said the family is devastated and didn't see this coming.

He said that "people still don't know how" the shooting occurred or how Cruz got his hands on the weapon he used to kill almost 20 people.

Just before the shooting broke out, some students thought they were having another fire drill.

Len Murray's 17-year-old son, a junior at the school, sent his parents a chilling text around 2:30pm: "Mom and Dad, there have been shots fired on campus at school".

Cruz's mother Lynda Cruz died of pneumonia on November 1 neighbors, friends and family members said, according to the Sun Sentinel.

"He got kicked out of school past year", said Bonilla.

Deutch appeared on Fox News Thursday and said he met with a student that recently interviewed him for the school's television station and expressed his condolences.

He was arrested by local police after a brief manhunt following the attack, one of the deadliest shootings in United States history.

"I will never forget the actions that he took for me and for fellow students in the classroom", Friend told CNN.
