The student, who is facing a felony charges for the threats, was admitted to the hospital for a mental health evaluation under Florida’s Baker Act.

After the arrests, Florida Gov. Rick Scott claimed in a letter to Sheriff Scott Israel and Superintendent Robert Runcie that “immediate steps be taken to an armed police to protect each point of entry” of the high school “while students are on campus.”

“The recent events at the school have shown that the need for additional security measures to be implemented,” Scott wrote, according to WFTS. He said that parents had contacted his office with regard to safety.

“Of all the schools in America, you would think that this is the safest now,” Rubio said in a statement.

The series of incidents came the day after Zachary Cruz — brother of suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz was arrested for trespassing at Stoneman Douglas property.

Cruz, 18, “illegal” skateboarded around the campus on Monday. He told officials he wanted to “reflect on the school shooting and to enjoy.”

While the penetration is usually a bond of only $25, Cruz the bond was located in an unusually high value of $500,000. Both the Cruz brothers are being held in the Broward County Jail.
