FBI Investigates YouTube Comment Possibly Linked To Florida Shooter

Conrad Doyle | 16 February, 2018, 06:12

Shortly after his successor in the White House addressed the nation on Wednesday's deadly mass shooting at a south Florida high school, former President Barack Obama made his first public comments on the rampage that left 17 people dead. Mr. Kurian, who has been in touch with Sheriff Scott Israel over the incident, said the police were planning to release the identities of the victims around noon local time on Thursday.

Trump said the rampage in Parkland, Florida showed the need to work with local authorities "to help secure our schools and tackle the hard issue of mental health".

At Thursday morning's presser, Lasky told reporters that Federal Bureau of Investigation got nowhere on that lead because they could get "no other information" about Cruz, including any indication of the time he posted the comment, his location, or his "true identity".

Trump also pledged that his administration would work with state and local officials to improve school safety and to "tackle the hard issue of mental health". "We are working closely with law enforcement on the awful Florida school shooting", the president wrote.

"If you needed something he was the first one there".

Authorities arrested 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who had been expelled from Marjory Stoneman over disciplinary problems, in the aftermath of what has become the deadliest school shooting since an attack on an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres said: "No words, no actions, no laws are enough until we end this epidemic of school shootings in our country".

"We could not have been more prepared for this situation, which is what makes it so frustrating", Falkowski said.

The president further called for Americans to work together "to create a culture in our country that embraces the dignity of life that creates deep and meaningful human connections, and that turns classmates and colleagues into friends and neighbors".

The president also issued a proclamation Thursday mourning the victims and ordered American flags to be flown at half-staff.

Trump has resisted calls for greater gun control measures after previous mass shootings. "We had an assault weapons ban".

Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said there were "numerous fatalities", while Broward County Sheriff said at least 14 victims had been transported to hospital.

In older shootings, such as the 2007 attack on Virginia Tech in which 32 people died, the attackers used handguns.

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi said sided with Nelson in that she'd like to see changes in the gun laws. He had blended himself into a crowd to escape the scene, the Broward County Sheriff's Office said.
