    Police Body Camera Footage Shows Arrest of Zachary Cruz for Trespassing at Stoneman Douglas

    Kimok said the video proves what he’s been saying all along: “He did not say or do anything that would even remotely suggest he was a threat to anyone. This video fully supports our position that Zachary should not be incarcerated and we are hopeful for his quick release.”

    Wounded teen who put cops on trail of Parkland shooter returns to school

    The wounded student praised for giving police a spot-on description of the Parkland school shooter has returned to class almost two months after the massacre.

    Kyle Laman, 15, nearly lost a limb — if not his life — on the day Nikolas Cruz prowled the halls of the school, killing 17 people and wounding 17 others. Despite being shot in the foot, Kyle said he never considered withdrawing from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High.

    The high school freshman rejoined his classmates on campus this week. Even though he’s still recovering from his bullet wound, he’d prefer to skip the fuss around his return — or his part in helping cops nab the shooter, according to his mother.

    “I just wanted to see some of my friends,” said Kyle, who will be facing more surgeries before he can walk again.

    On Monday, Kyle showed up to school accompanied by Coral Springs Police Sgt. Jeff Heinrich, the officer who found Kyle running on his injured foot in a field. Heinrich got him to paramedics after administering first aid.

    Kyle gave Heinrich a description of the shooter that was “spot on,” including where the shooter had been and what he was wearing, police said.

    On Tuesday, Kyle’s first full day back to school, Coral Springs Commissioner Larry Vignola pushed him in his wheelchair around campus.

    Kyle said he felt no fear from being back in school. Vignola said it was moving to watch Kyle welcomed back.

    ‘It Has to Be Perfect’: Putting Out a Yearbook After the Parkland Shooting
    Moments after that terrible Valentine’s Day, the thought crept into the minds of the Aerie yearbook staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. They would have to memorialize this tragedy in their pages. Somehow.

    At first, some students hesitated. “I thought it’d be too much,” said Elizabeth Stout, 17, a senior who is the book’s co-editor in chief, of the staff’s offer to write about the students killed. “I didn’t know at the time if it’d even be right to.”

    Few students who have survived mass shootings in schools have faced the same dilemma. The children at Sandy Hook were too young. Those at Columbine were too far along in the school year.

    At Stoneman Douglas High, where a former student is accused of killing 17 people in a deadly rampage, editors decided the shooting would not overtake their book. They insisted on preserving a record of the days that came before, the ones filled with the regular markers of high school life: Football games. Club activities. The Sadie Hawkins dance.

    But they also knew their classmates would keep their book for decades, lugging it with them from dorm rooms to first apartments and showing it to their own children, who would ask about the shooting at Parkland and the lives that had been lost. The book would have to tell that story, too.

    For several days in the aftermath, the staff allowed The New York Times to follow the group of 37 editors, designers, writers and photographers as they pulled together the book — choosing the photographs and laying out the pages and making the painstaking decisions on how to best honor the students and staff who had died. The 452-page book is scheduled to be published in May and distributed to more than 2,500 people.

    “This,” Elizabeth said, “has to be remembered for the rest of our lives.”

    Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz: Donate my inheritance to victims
    Nikolas Cruz wants the victims of his Valentine's Day rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and their families to choose a charity to receive any money he's got coming to him, his lawyer said Wednesday.

    He doesn't want any money from his mother's life insurance policy or any other source of income, defense attorney Melisa McNeill said.

    "He would like that money donated to an organization that the victims' families believe could facilitate healing in our community," she said.

    Cruz, 19, was in court Wednesday for a hearing to determine whether he has too much money to expect taxpayers to foot the bill for his legal defense. He is now represented by the Broward Public Defender's Office, which handles clients who cannot afford to hire their own lawyers.

    But whether Cruz falls into that category remains an open question - one that Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer said Wednesday she will not answer immediately.

    Brother of Parkland school shooter allowed to leave jail after latest arrest
    May 03, 2018 03:24 PM

    After serving three days in jail for violating his probation, the brother of Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz will be getting out of jail.
    Cruz was allowed to leave jail hours after civil lawyers representing the teen filed a federal lawsuit going after the Broward Sheriff's Office, prosecutors and the courts for his treatment earlier in the case. His brother is facing the death penalty for killing 17 people and wounding 16 others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High on Feb. 14, a case that has drawn worldwide attention and sparked renewed activism for gun control.

    Parkland shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz allegedly pointed gun at brother, mother, report says
    By Elizabeth Zwirz

    Nikolas Cruz, the teen accused of killing 17 people during a Florida high school shooting on Feb. 14, reportedly threatened to shoot his brother and mother during separate past incidents.

    The violent revelations came during an interview with Zachary Cruz, the younger brother of the suspect, who spoke to the Miami Herald.
    Zachary told the Herald that his older brother was depressed and cut himself, recalling one time where he said he saw Nikolas in the bathroom with his wrists bleeding.

    Two Parkland student activists are targets of 'swatting' hoaxes
    JUN 10, 2018 | 3:00 AM

    They’re bogus 911 calls with real consequences — and public figures or celebrities are often the victims.

    Last week, 18-year-old activist David Hogg and fellow #NeverAgain student leader Cameron Kasky were targeted by “swatting” calls, according to authorities in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida. Both have emerged as activists after the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 people dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

    In Parkland, there was no one at the Hogg home when deputies responded Tuesday morning. A 911 caller claimed he was armed inside the home with multiple weapons and had hurt people, Broward Sheriff’s spokeswoman Gina Carter said. The caller did not say David Hogg was among the supposed victims.

    Similarly, in West Delray, authorities responded to the home of Jeffrey Kasky, father of #NeverAgain founder Cameron Kasky, who lives there part-time. Neither was home at the time. However, authorities say other relatives were.

    School shooting suspect's brother starts anti-bully campaign
    Curt Anderson, Ap Legal Affairs Writer
    Updated 12:03 pm, Thursday, June 14, 2018


    Zachary Cruz, 18, said the initiative will set up anti-bullying student chapters at schools across the country, create a 24-hour national telephone hotline for bullying victims to call for help and provide sustained attention to the problem. Nexus Services, the Virginia company that provided Zachary Cruz with a job and living quarters after his own scrape with the law, is sponsoring the effort.

    The WIN initiative — "We Isolate No One" — was unveiled at a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington.

    Student who survived Parkland school shooting dies in suicide: report


    The suicide death over the weekend of a teen who survived the 2018 Parkland school shooting is being blamed on the horrible tragedy.

    Sydney Aiello, 19, of Coconut Creek, died Sunday, according to police. Her grief-stricken mother told a news station Sydney took her own life. Sydney and Meadow Pollack, one of the 17 persons killed in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, were close friends.

    “It breaks my heart that we’ve lost yet another student from Stoneman Douglas,” Ryan Petty told CBS 4 Miami. Alaina Perry, his daughter, was also one of the victims.


    “My advice to parents is to ask questions, don’t wait,” he said.

    Sydney suffered from “survivor’s guilt” and had been diagnosed recently with post-traumatic stress disorder, Cara Aiello told the station.

    She said her daughter was taking college classes but struggled because she was scared to be in a classroom. She graduated Stoneman Douglas in June after the shooting.

    Aiello said her daughter was sad but never asked for help before killing herself, according to the station.

    She said she was talking about the suicide in hopes that others can learn from what happened to her daughter.

    “Beautiful Sydney with such a bright future was taken from us way too soon,” Meadow Pollack’s brother, Hunter Pollack, said Wednesday on Twitter. “My friend’s sister and someone dear to Meadow."


    Second student who survived Florida school shooting dies in apparent suicide, police say

    A high school student who survived the 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., died Saturday in an apparent suicide a week after another survivor killed herself, police said.

    Police received a call about a deceased person at a home Saturday night and arrived at the scene to find a juvenile who died in an apparent suicide, a Coral Springs Policespokesman told Fox News on Sunday. The official cause of death has not been released pending the medical examiner’s autopsy.

    Police confirmed the juvenile was a current Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, but did not release further details. Authorities were investigating the incident.


    Sources told the Miami Herald, who first reported the story, that the juvenile was a male student who was a sophomore.

    News of the death comes a week after Sydney Aiello, who recently graduated from the high school, took her own life. Her mother, Cara Aiello, told CBS Miami that Sydney was recently diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and struggled with "survivor’s guilt" after 17 of her classmates and staff members were gunned down on Feb. 14, 2018. She added her daughter was afraid of being in a classroom and struggled to attend classes in college.

    The suicide death over the weekend of a teen who survived the 2018 Parkland school shooting is being blamed on the horrible tragedy.

    From Fran's post, my emphasis. Yes, the shooting is to blame for her suicide, but how insensitive for Fox to word it this way. What is also to blame is the lack of leadership with our legislators to pass meaningful gun violence prevention bills. These two suicides are two additional victims of the Parkland massacre.

    Today is one year since the national March for Our Lives and while there have been some changes, it hasn't been enough. BTW, both of these MSD students died via suicide by gun.

    If you don't think we have a gun problem, you are not paying attention!!
