FBI Says It Failed to Pursue Warning on Florida School Shooter

The sheriff's comments follow an admission from the FBI earlier Friday that the bureau failed to follow standard "protocols" when it received a tip about Cruz to a national hotline earlier this year.

The owners of the gun shop where charged high school shooter Nikolas Cruz bought his weapon are distraught, in hiding and have closed the store, their lawyers said.

Cruz also anxious officials at his former school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, who on at least one occasion alerted a mobile crisis unit to get him emergency counseling, according to the state report.

"The FBI's failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable", Scott said in a statement.

"They didn't see anything", Lewis said.

Florida governor Rick Scott said the FBI's failure was "unacceptable" and called for the resignation of Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray.

"It is for that reason that no red flags were raised", the attorney said, adding, "It seems like Mr. Cruz made a deliberate attempt to not draw suspicion by not buying too many things from one place."
"I'm going to be a professional school shooter", wrote a "Nikolas Cruz", whose profile did not have a photo. They all believe that we need to do a better job of receiving these signs and acting on them and following up on them better.

He said he doesn't remember which video Cruz made the comment, and authorities have not confirmed whether the person who made the comment is the same Nikolas Cruz accused in the Parkland school shooting.

Florida House votes down motion to take up assault weapons ban
Ross Spano, a Dover Republican, who has refused to hold a hearing on the assault weapons ban. "But no one needs an AR-15". Stoneman Douglas students were in the gallery watching as the vote took place - some reportedly broke into tears.

Cruz left Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by blending in with other students and headed to Walmart and later McDonald's, the Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper says. "Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn't going to cut it", the governor said.

He ran to the third floor, where according to a timeline released by the Broward County Sheriff's Office, three minutes passed before he dropped the rifle and backpack, ran back down the stairs and quickly blended in with panicked, fleeing students.

Ben Bennight, a 36-year-old MS bail bondsman and "frequent YouTube vlogger" saw an alarming comment under one of his videos: a user named Nikolas Cruz who wrote "I'm going to be a professional school shooter".

Several previous mass shooters have left behind digital warning signs, like social media pages filled with guns or videos announcing their intent.

The FBI briefly spoke with Bennight, who denied knowing anything about the YouTuber named Cruz.

Former cadets told The Associated Press that Cruz was on the varsity marksmanship team that competed against other area schools.

The FBI further admits that a warning of this magnitude should have sparked an investigation and been treated "as a potential threat to life". Cruz was expelled from Stoneman Douglas High in 2017.

"He has been cutting his arms, his mother said, to get attention, as he learned it from an ex-girlfriend", one deputy's report said.
