Florida shooter was expelled for 'disciplinary reasons'

Florida shooter was expelled for 'disciplinary reasons'

Police say 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, equipped with a gas mask, smoke grenades and multiple magazines of ammunition, opened fire with a semi-automatic weapon, killing 17 people and sending hundreds of students fleeing into the streets.

The school enrolls more than 3,150 students in grades 9 through 12, according to data from the 2015-16 school year. They did not specify when he was expelled or the specifics of his expulsion.

Nicolas Cruz, 19, who officials said is a former student at the school, has been ID'd as the suspected shooter.

Cruz also complained often about bullying on campus and "had beef with one kid". He was enrolled at another Broward County school, officials said. "I can't go up the stairs because up the stairs there was just trails of blood".

Tributes on social media initially assumed Feis was dead, but it was soon revealed that he survived the shooting.

Students described Cruz as "psycho" and "racist".

He added: "I don't know why he left".

"I saw some bodies".

Math teacher Jim Gard, who taught Cruz a year ago, told the Miami Herald school administrators warned that Cruz had made threats in the past. "It wasn't good", another student told West Palm Beach's WPTV. "This teacher was apparently trying to help a student and got shot", the student added.

US President Donald Trump sent his "prayers and condolences" to the families of those who died in the "terrible" shooting.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he had been in contact with local authorities about the episode and would continue to follow the events on the ground.

British media personality Morgan issued a stern challenge to Trump via Twitter, asking what he planned to do about mass shootings in the United States.

Kardashian West said: "We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school. It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a outcome of our inaction", says Senator Chris Murphy, (D) CT.

It has again renewed the debate surrounding gun control in the US. Others pointed to the use of the AR-15 rifle in a number of mass shootings in the country.
