Parkland prayer vigils remember those lost in high school massacre

Cruz, who had been expelled from the school, has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and is now in custody without bond.

Authorities said that Cruz attacked the school with a semiautomatic AR-15-style rifle that he bought legally.

Among the growing toll of victims of Wednesday's horrific mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) High in Florida is the leader of the school's sports program, athletic director Chris Hixon.

Disturbing footage has emerged of suspected Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz doing target practice shirtless in a backyard while wearing a Make America Great Again cap. She said Cruz had been abusive to his girlfriend. The classmate said the rule was put in place after the school found bullet casings in his bag after a fight with another student. A MS bail bondsman said he alerted the Federal Bureau of Investigation last September after someone using the screen name "Nikolas Cruz" posted a comment on his YouTube channel saying: "Im going to be a professional school shooter". The president said there were "so many signs" about Cruz and he declared, "Neighbours and classmates knew he was a big problem".

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel also reports that Cruz is a member of a white nationalist group and participated in paramilitary drills. A prominent member of the Republic of Florida - a self-proclaimed "white civil rights organization" - told the ADF that Cruz had attended one of their training events and had been "brought up" by another ROF member.

Authorities said Cruz was transported to a local hospital as a precaution after he "exhibited labored breathing", according to the news release.

Burton says, as a kid, Cruz jumped in front of a moving vehicle and that he liked to hurt animals. Israel said an armed security officer was on campus at the time of the shooting but never encountered the gunman. I encourage you to talk with your children at home to keep lines of communication open so they feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings about current events.

"My heart is with the students and parents of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School".

"We were told past year that he wasn't allowed on campus with a backpack on him", he said at the time. "He came up to me later on the day and apologized for what he said".

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel explained it's going to take a lot of time for them to sift through the information that's coming in and determine what's true and what's not.
