Florida, angry and grieving, takes gun protest to streets

Authorities say Cruz, 19, was a former student at Stoneman Douglas who had been expelled, had mental health issues and had been reported to law enforcement before he used a legally purchased semiautomatic rifle to take the lives of 17 people on Wednesday.

The man accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school had reportedly been investigated for self-harm and saying he wanted to buy a gun. "We had rules, and he followed every rule to a tee", James Snead said on "Good Morning America".

Cruz was an orphan - his mother, Lynda Cruz, died of pneumonia November 1, and her husband died of a heart attack years ago, neighbours, friends and family members told the Sun Sentinel.

The FBI failed to act on a tip about Nikolas Cruz, the confessed shooter in the Parkland, Florida, school massacre, the bureau said in a statement on Friday.

"I'd met him a couple times before", he said, adding Cruz "stayed at the house with my son, spent the night".

So the Sneads, who own guns themselves and keep them under lock and key, drove to Lantana to pick up Cruz and his belongings. James Snead said he heard Cruz mumble an apology.

Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of first-degree murder in the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

CBS News correspondent John Blackstone asked how many guns Cruz had.

They said Cruz seemed depressed after his mother's death, but gave no warning signs that he would turn violent.

Police were called to the home most recently in September 2016, months before the mom, Cruz, and his little brother moved from the quiet, prosperous neighbourhood of Parkland, Broward County, reports the New York Post.

A person who was close to Cruz called the FBI's tip line on January 5 and provided information about Cruz's weapons and his erratic behaviour, including his disturbing social media posts.

Cruz called her "a useless b***h", along with other profanities she declined to share with the police.

Shaking with emotion, Ms Gonzalez said: We did (flag Cruz). To the families of the victims, they said they are very sorry.

"He is fascinated by the use of guns and often speaks of weapons and the importance of 'having weapons to remain safe in this world, '" school officials noted.

Jordan Jereb, head of a white nationalist group called the Republic of Florida, said Thursday that Cruz was a member and had taken part in paramilitary drills with the organization.

On social media, shooter Nikolas Cruz revealed his obsession with guns and violence.

"He was insane about guns", Chad told Reuters by the side of the road near the high school.

The Sneads told the Sun Sentinel that they crossed paths with Cruz at the sheriff's station as he was being led into the building in handcuffs after the shooting.
