Brother of Parkland shooter arrested for trespassing at Stoneman Douglas high

A student’s best friend

But more than a year earlier, documents in the criminal case against Nikolas Cruz and obtained by The Associated Press show school officials and a sheriff's deputy recommended in September 2016 that Cruz be involuntarily committed for a mental evaluation. Had Peterson followed through, Cruz would likely have been unable to legally purchase firearms. Zachary Cruz was arrested Monday after deputies said he trespassed at the school. Mr. Cruz was also said to be upset that his mother, Lynda Cruz, would not let him get an identification card required to buy a gun. He also admitted to cutting his arm with a pencil sharpener.

The FBI is taking the blame for not acting on the situation regarding Nikolas Cruz.

According to one such document obtained by AP, Cruz "reports that he cut his arms 3-4 weeks ago and states that this is the only time he has ever cut. (Cruz) states that he is better now, reports that he is no longer lonely and states that his grades have gone back up".

He also told the clinician he owned only a pellet gun and was not capable of doing "serious harm" to anyone.

Chelsea defeat Leicester City 2-1 in FA Cup
Pedro scored with a header in extra time for Chelsea to advance to the FA Cup semifinals with a 2-1 win at Leicester on Sunday. But Leicester's Jamie Vardy smashed in from close range to force extra-time.

Deputy Peterson was still serving as the school resource officer at Stoneman Douglas High when Mr. Cruz carried out his deadly rampage.

He had written the word "kill" in a notebook, told another student he wanted to buy and use a gun, and had claimed to have consumed gasoline and vomited.

Investigators are still working to determine how Cruz was able to legally purchase an AR-15 rifle previous year, despite numerous red flags. He reportedly told a Broward County sheriff's deputy that he made a decision to visit the school anyway to "reflect on the school shooting and to soak it in", according to the affidavit.

Cruz is being held without bond at the Broward County Jail, where he's segregated from other inmates.

Cars, bodies remain trapped in Florida bridge collapse; six dead
The main priority, Perez said Friday, was to get to the bodies police believe are trapped under collapsed concrete. Two workers were on the 950-ton bridge when it pancaked on top of vehicles waiting at a stoplight.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, has confessed to the February 14 school shooting and faces the death penalty for the murder of 17 and the attempted murder of 17 others.

The startling new revelation fuels even more speculation that local law enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation could have prevented the mass shooting that took the lives of 17 individuals and injured scores more.

Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of first-degree murder, as well as 17 counts of attempted murder.
