Federal Bureau of Investigation warned about Florida gunman but failed to act

Florida Gov. Rick Scott speaks to reporters during a news conference at Think Anew Tuesday Aug. 8 2017 in Tampa

Trump, for his part, has also gone through life spewing white supremacist rhetoric, sexually harassing and assaulting women, all with little or no consequences.

The 19-year-old has been charged with killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, north of Miami.

Ben Bennight, a Gulfport bail bondsman who goes by "Ben the Bondsman" on YouTube, said in a video posted Wednesday night that he spoke to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in September about a comment left on one of his videos by someone with the username "nikolas cruz".

Cruz has admitted to the shooting, according to an arrest affidavit reported by the New York Times and others.

The suspected gunman was later taken into custody in a neighbouring town.

Trump visits school "shattered" by shootingPhoto Mourners leave the funeral of Meadow Pollack, a victim of the shooting in Parkland. It is about an hours drive from Miami in southeast Florida.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is a public school with about 3,000 students.

The burial became more emotional, he added, saying, "People were yelling, "No, no".

In 2015, a breakdown in the FBI's background-check system helped a white supremacist purchase a weapon and kill nine people at a historically black church in SC.

The shooter had previously been expelled from the school and some other students had made jokes in the past that he would be "the one to shoot up the school". Two died from their injuries at the hospital.

Athletic director and wrestling coach Chris Hixon, described as a father figure to students, was amoung those 17 shot dead.

"There was just really a lot of sadness in there", Mr Gately, a 51-year-old financial adviser who lives in Parkland, said.

Cruz now faces 17 counts of premeditated murder.

Police say the gunman was armed with a semiautomatic AR-15 rifle and carried "multiple" magazines with him.

Officials have begun going through Cruz's social media accounts and have found "disturbing" posts.

"This is totally destructive to the "see something, say something" narrative that we hear so often from law enforcement", he said.

'I just ran': What have students said?

A number of unverified videos from inside the school at the time of the shooting have been circulating on social media.

The school's janitor also played a part in protecting students from walking into the path of the shooter. The mother made it clear to me that if she would have seen anything like that in him, she never would have let him live in her house.

As everyone was going insane in a flurry to stay safe and get out of the building, Cruz managed to get away completely unnoticed and spend an hour browsing the aisles of Walmart and chowing down on fast food in a McDonald's restaurant before finally being arrested by police officers.

In response to the FBI's admission, Scott released his own statement calling on Wray to resign.
