Federal Bureau of Investigation was warned about alleged shooter almost 5 months ago, tipster says

Around 2:30 yesterday afternoon, police responded to reports of gunfire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida - a great and safe community.

Through his presidency, Trump also removed more people from the NICS, effectively allowing them to buy guns: About 500,000 "fugitives from justice", or people who have crossed state lines to avoid prosecution, were allowed to buy guns. Several people are in a critical condition. Here's what we know about Cruz: WEDNESDAY'S EVENTSGunfire erupted at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shortly before dismissal on Wednesday, Feb. 14.

"We were told previous year that he wasn't allowed on campus with a backpack on him", Mr Gard told the Miami Herald. He says "they're going to have to get with YouTube about where the comment originated, but I think they already know".

Students at the school said there were plenty of red flags about Cruz, who was expelled past year after a fight with his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend. After they broke up, she said, Cruz got into a fight with her new boyfriend, leading to his expulsion.

A sheriff said the bodies of 12 of the dead, including a beloved coach and security guard, Aaron Feis, who stepped in front of one spray of bullets to protect his students, were found inside the building. "I said, 'This isn't the golf course, '" she said. "We try to keep our eyes out on those kids who aren't connected". Investigators said he slipped away during the chaos by mixing in with the other students. A student told WFOR-TV that other students "knew it was going to be him". According to law enforcement officials, Nikolas Cruz legally purchased the assault weapon before used in the massacre, the deadliest school shooting in the five years. Mutchler said Cruz had posted about killing animals on social media and talked about guns and target practice. If they're expelled, they're gone. "But of course, he came back".

"There were problems with him previous year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus".

"Typically you see in these situations that there potentially could have been signs out there", Runcie said.

Trump said, "To law enforcement, first responders, and teachers who responded so bravely in the face of danger, we thank you for your courage".

Jim Lewis told The Associated Press on Thursday that Cruz began living with the family after his mother died in November.

Appearing on "The Laura Ingraham Show", Addison Jost said her friend saw accused shooter Nikolas Cruz putting together his AR-15 rifle in the bathroom.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who is a vocal proponent of gun control, spoke on the Senate floor as news of the shooting broke.

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff through Monday, February 19 to honor the victims of a mass shooting at a Florida high school.

The accused gunman, Nikolas Cruz, 19, was expelled from the school a year ago for "disciplinary reasons", authorities said, and former classmates told media that he displayed problematic behavior and a fascination with guns.
