Authorities getting 'copycat threats' day after gunman killed 17 at Florida school

Authorities getting 'copycat threats' day after gunman killed 17 at Florida school Authorities getting 'copycat threats' day after gunman killed 17 at Florida school

A Twitter account apparently from a student at the school had earlier reacted angrily to Mr Trump's initial suggestion of prayers in response to the tragedy.

"So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behaviour", Trump tweeted. Their identities were not immediately provided. So when the alarm went off Wednesday afternoon shortly before they were to be dismissed, they once again filed out into the hallways.

Student Matthew Walker told ABC News that Mr Cruz was known for posting pictures of weapons on social media.

"I am so happy I made that decision because where we do formation is 40 feet from where the shooter was", Zachary explained.

Friend said she told her geography teacher she was scared.

I was just in that school. The students in the classroom survived.

It is believed Cruz acted alone.

Three more were killed just outside the school and another two died of their injuries after being taken to the hospital, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said.

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, alongside Florida Governor Rick Scott and other officials, commented on the shooting which claimed the lives of 17 people.

WPLG-TV and CBS News have reported that 17-year-old Jamie Guttenberg is among those killed in the shooting. Bennight said he followed up with a phone call to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"If a person is predisposed to commit such a horrific event by going to a school and shooting people. there's not anybody or not a lot law enforcement can do about it".

She added: "Never in a million years did I think I would have ever gone through this".

Math teacher Jim Gard told The Miami Herald that Cruz may have been seen as a potential threat well before the rampage.

An attorney representing the family who had taken in Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz says they're shocked by what happened and had no idea he was planning anything.

The boys were left in the care of a family friend after their mother died, family member Barbara Kumbatovich, of Long Island, said.

Unhappy there, Nikolas Cruz asked to move in with a friend's family in northwest Broward.

Mr Cruz had been staying with a local family in recent months. He did have the key, however.

"He turned to Chris, and he said, 'You should run". But investigators said they have not confirmed any such ties.

Authorities have not yet released a possible motive in the incident, but noted Cruz was previously expelled from the Parkland school.

"Everybody stopped moving", she said.

He says the administration is working with state and local leaders "to help secure our schools" and focus on the issue of mental health. A former classmate, Joshua Charo, said that Cruz spoke about shooting rats with a BB gun.

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that Cruz legally purchased his AR-15 rifle about a year ago.
