Nikolas Cruz Parkland FL School Death – Seventeen people were killed in a shooting at a high school in South Florida, and investigators still don’t know what provoked the tragedy. Early Thursday morning, former student and main suspect Nikolas Cruz was arrested and lodged into the Broward County Jail on 17 counts of premeditated murder. According to the Broward County Sheriff, who spoke at a press conference, Cruz legally purchased an AR-15.
It was reported to the FBI in 2017 that a YouTube user had said something along the lines of “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” The FBI had no way of knowing who had made the remark at the time. In a blog post, the blogger who received the tip identified Cruz as the culprit. Assistant football coach at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Aaron Feis has been confirmed as the first victim. He was the very first victim of the shooting. The school’s football team tweeted after the shooting, “He valiantly shielded students from the shooter.” We will always hold dear the memory of him as a brave warrior who deserved to die.
The deaths of the high school athletic director and a campus monitor were announced later on Thursday morning. For some reason, no one seemed to notice them right away. Superintendent Robert Runcie said at a news conference, “Those two heroes gave their lives for our kids and probably helped prevent this tragedy from becoming even worse.”
