New details released in South Florida shooting

New details released in South Florida shooting

According to police, a former student, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, arrived at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School armed with an AR-15 rifle and "countless magazines" of ammunition.

On Wednesday, shooting erupted at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, located in the southern part of Florida. "We must make sure that they hear us", she said. How do they get through security?

Officials said the shooter was dropped off at the high school by an Uber driver. "Shooting her! And killing her!"

Lori Alhadeff had just organised her daughter's funeral arrangements when she delivered a highly emotional plea to Mr Trump on CNN.

The comedian scolded Trump, saying that the president has "literally done nothing" to prevent gun violence, nor implemented effective change to help the mentally ill.

An emotional Jimmy Kimmel addressed Trump on his February 15 show, telling him he needs to do something to prevent another school shooting. "You say this is a mental health issue, but one of your first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to rollback the regulations that were created to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill".

In an address delivered from the White House, Trump said he plans to visit families in Parkland and work with "state and local leaders" to "tackle the hard issue of mental health". "His adopted mother - the only mother he ever knew - died November first of previous year".

There have been suggestions there were red flags such as his postings on social media about becoming a "professional school shooter" that were missed.

"No additional information was found to positively identify the person who posted this comment", said Robert Lasky, Miami FBI special agent.

There had been other red flags such as frequent run-ins with the law.

A spokesperson for the Republic of Florida (ROF), which describes itself as a "white civil rights" group with an "organized militia", confirmed that Nikolas Cruz was associated with their movement.

A white supremacist group claimed Cruz is a member.

But calls for their release have intensified in the wake of the Florida school shooting, which left 17 people dead, including 14 students.
