Individuals who are planning to have a mass shooting, often showing signs of their intent, either in the financial statements of the friends, and social media posts.

The driver told the CBS affiliate that she saw him with a black bag. Cruz said, ” it was for a music class. They are called to the stage was uneventful.

Andrew Medina, a security guard, who is also the school’s baseball coach, who was spotted Cruz, and remembered him as “crazy boy,” the Sun-Sentinel reported. Medina has been charged, by Andrew Pollack, the father of one of the victims, and for failure to act.


Cruz finally went into the school and crashed into the side of a first-year student in the area of the second floor of the toilet while trying to load a gun in his hand, police said. Cruz also reportedly told the students that it’s better to leave because “things are going to start to get messy.”

The first-year students are warned of a staffer who was accused of non-implementation of the protocol in this case. In total, three of the school’s staff does not notify the school of a shooter on campus, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Cruz is then activated by a fire alarm — and while the students were leaving the classroom, he allegedly opened fire.

By Aaron Feis, an offensive line coach for the school’s football team, was the first victim to be identified. The school’s football team, tweeted Feis “protected students from the shooter” when he was hit by a bullet.


“He was our Assistant coach and a security guard. He has selflessly protected the students from the gunman when he was shot. He died as a hero and he will always be in our hearts and in our memories,” the tweet said.

In the meantime, the scene at the school was chaotic, and a lot of the teachers and the students had no idea what was going on around them. A 17-year-old student, told the Associated Press that the fire alarm went off for the second time, and the students were quietly filing into the building next door.

“Everybody was just there, quietly, and then, we saw a lot of teachers, and ran down the stairs, and then everybody moved, and broke into a sprint,” she said. “I jumped the fence.”

In spite of the acts of bravery of some of the members, and some of the public outrage that has been assigned to a response from the Broward County Sheriff’s deputies.

Scot Peterson, a former deputy who was on duty in the school at the time of the shooting, was seen on the surveillance video rushing with two members of staff at the building where the shooting happened. When they came, he drew his weapon, but then it went away, and took up a position outside where he was with his gun drawn.

Peterson was arrested and imprisoned in 2019 at the latest, on 11 criminal charges related to his alleged inaction during the massacre. He was charged with child neglect or culpable negligence, and perjury — charges that have a maximum term of imprisonment of more than 100.

Joseph DiRuzzo, III, a lawyer, said in a statement last summer, that Peterson was just a scapegoat. He said that the allegations are “a thinly veiled attempt to be politically-motivated retaliation.” The Sun-Sentinel reported that four deputies who had arrived on the scene, but did not immediately engage the shooter.

Deputies, Edward Eason, and Josh Stambaugh came to an end after an internal affairs investigation. Two of the other officers, Peterson and Sgt. Brian Miller has been fired in the previous year. Scott Israel, the sheriff at the time, was fired by the Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, for similar reasons, and the state Senate confirmed the decision. Israel called the decision of the state.

Stambaugh could not be carried out in the direction of the shot, at a number of venues in order to stop the shooter, according to the report. “Stambaugh, seemed to cover over the assistance of of delegates it to enter a potential hot zone, he said, on the basis of the video from the body camera. At a given point in time, Stambaugh told an officer with the Coral Springs Police department is nearing the MASS-building 12, where the shots were fired — “look into yourself”, as he stayed behind cover.

Cruz is a stalking, more classrooms, and fired more than 100 rounds. The Sun-Sentinel reported that it took them five minutes, and 32 seconds of the first track.

Just before 2:30 p.m. multiple 911 calls reported a shooting came in, and the bodies were sent to the high school, according to Cruz, the probable cause affidavit. The suspect’s description and was sand-blasted using a police radio.

“As a result of the chaos, several people were on the flight, in front of the school,” the statement said. “After the shooting, the shooter will be mixed with the water of students, and was able to escape from the approaching officers.”

Cruz was taken into custody without a fight.


The massacre at marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, forced out of the country, to come to grips with gun violence in schools. Some of the students at the school, such as David Hogg, the political activists and challenged the status quo on gun laws.

The former President barack Obama, wrote in a column for Time magazine called the students an inspiration for change.

“Branded by the memory of seeing their friends killed, in a place which they are believed to be safe, these young leaders are not easily intimidated,” he wrote.

The parents of some of the victims at the school are also encouraged to take on responsibilities, ranging from stricter gun laws, the more effective is the response of the police and the schools have been designed with safe and secure spaces for students, in the event of a shoot-out. The Sun-Sentinel report said that some of the students at the school were locked at the back because the toilets were locked as a result of vaping trend on campus.

A lot of parents are resigned to knowing that their lives were changed forever, and the emotions are still raw.

Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, died in the shooting, which was removed by the President, and the Home’s State of the Union address earlier this month, after he shouted about gun control when the president is sworn to protect the Second Amendment rights.

Guttenberg later apologized.

“Tonight was a rough night,” he tweeted. “I’m upset with the State of the Union, and has been since I have let my emotions get the best of me. I just want to be able to deal with the reality of gun violence, and do not listen to the lies about the 2A, as happened tonight.

“Having said that, I should not have yelled it out. I am so grateful for the overwhelming support that I receive. However, I want to thank my family and friends an apology. I’ve been trying to set myself up with dignity in this process, and I will do a better job if I were to strive for ” gun safety.”
