Warning signs may have been missed in school shooting case

Warning signs may have been missed in school shooting case

"What I'm asking our lawmakers to do is go back to places like Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., to give police the power", the sheriff said, to detain people who make graphic threats or post disturbing material online and bring them involuntarily to mental health professionals to be examined.

President Trump said he plans to travel to Parkland, Florida in the wake of yesterday's deadly school shooting that claimed 17 lives.

Noah Parness, a 17-year-old junior, said he and the other students calmly went outside to their fire-drill areas when he suddenly heard popping sounds.

The suspected perpetrator of yesterday's shooting, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, is now in custody after he allegedly stormed into his former high school Majory Stoneman Douglas High School wielding an AR-15 assault rifle. The shooter had an AR-15 rifle, precisely the kind of weapon that should not be in the hands of anyone other than military personnel in combat or combat training. This is the 18th school shooting in our country In 2018 - and it's only February 14.

"No other information was included in the comment which would indicate a particular time, location or the true identity of the person who posted the comment", said Brett Carr, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Jackson, Mississippi. The family agreed, and Cruz moved in around Thanksgiving.

The family's lawyer, Jim Lewis, said: "They are heartbroken".

Mr Cruz had been staying with a local family in recent months, following his adopted mother's death in November. "No anger. Just a lot of depression and stuff going on around the loss of his mother", said Lewis. She said he had been abusive to his girlfriend.

Scott said leaders will look at how they can make sure something like that never happens again.

Cruz was getting treatment at a mental health clinic for a while, but hadn't been there for more than a year, Broward County Mayor Beam Furr said during an interview with CNN. "We are responsible for a level of mass atrocity that happens in this country with zero parallel anywhere else".

Cruz's Instagram account, which has since been deleted, featured numerous photos of Cruz clad in black bandanas, beanies and ball caps, showing off his guns.

Former schoolmate Joshua Charo said Mr Cruz had been found with bullets in his backpack. "And until we can honestly say that we're doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change".

Cruz also familiarised himself with the school's layout and emergency procedures, so knew how the school would react, the student said. While we don't know all the details of this horrific event, this is act of carnage is all too familiar.
