CBS News has confirmed that the suspect has been identified as Nicholas Cruz, 19. A law enforcement source briefed on the shooting said the suspect appears to have pulled the school fire alarm, causing chaos, and then started shooting, reports CBS News news senior investigative producer Pat Milton.

The suspect, who had “at one time” attended the school but was no longer enrolled, was taken into custody without incident off campus, Israel said. He didn’t know why the suspect left the school.

My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.

    An active shooter drill was scheduled for that school today… How ironic that it goes live. The Mossad run US government is back to terrorizing it’s citizens again.

      Another mass murder by the ‘Deep State’ in the name of gun control.
      We think it’s getting very obvious by now.
      It’s also obvious that they are not going to stop until they have ALL Our weapons.
      These Marxist bastards and their ‘left-stream’ Media want to open the borders and have gangs control the masses ( like Germany has set up with referees ) for them.
      As long as you keep supporting these government criminal’s , their followers and Sessions refusing to prosecute..We are going to continue to have these kind of killings and killing of people that try to get in their way or those that try to take them down..The Clinton’s killing machine is a good example.

        As you can tell … the ‘left-stream’ Media has not been on Our side for decades.. and when at war.. they always side with the enemy.
        They..the Democrat ‘Socialist’ Party and Hollywood are the enemy ‘WITHIN!’

    Justin Lewis, 16, said they had a fire drill this morning, so when they had another one at 2:30 p.m… But as they evacuated, he realized it wasn’t.

    Nicole Baltzer, 18, “I heard so many gunshots, at least like six. They were very close. We all thought it was a fire drill because we had one previously today …so no one was that nervous”.

    Students at the school said a fire alarm went off — they were exiting the school like a normal fire drill when they heard gunshots.

    They had fire drill, so they went out, heard really loud noise, teacher asked to run back inside, heard several gun shots,

    I would torture the SOB to D E A T H on live TV, as a message to other idiots like this. :mad:

    They all knew he was going to come back and SHOOT everybody. Nearly all who knew him said that? So why weren’t the students warned and then not ARMED??

    Was this another stupid gun-killing zone the lying lieberals like to call gun-free zone? It caused 17 deaths and many injured. Lieberals should be rounded up for causing another KILL ZONE! :twisted:

    Has this sort of thing increased or decreased since the creation of Homeland Security? And nobody gets suspicious?
