Florida shooting: Cruz charged with 17 counts of murder


Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gunman Nikolas Cruz was indicted Wednesday on 34 counts related to the February 14 mass shooting.

Cruz, 19, allegedly opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on February 14, killing 17 people and injuring others.

Cruz is charged with 17 counts of murder and could face the death penalty.

The attempted murder charges relate to those wounded in the attack, state attorney Michael Satz said in a statement.

This is a developing story. His office has historically sought grand jury findings before deciding on death penalty cases.

James and Kimberly Snead, who took in Cruz after his mother died, were questioned for an hour Wednesday morning by the grand jury. Police said before Cruz was captured he stopped at a Subway for a drink, then sat down at a McDonald's restaurant.

Court documents reveal Cruz, 19, is kept in solitary confinement at Broward County Jail for his own safety, and that he appears to be enjoying himself while in confinement. That gunman, Nikolas Cruz, was arrested after the massacre, and according to the New York Post, he has been "smiling and giggling" in jail on some days and has also been restless at night.

The public defender representing Cruz has said the teen will plead guilty if prosecutors agree to not pursue the death penalty. "Various folks have been subpoenaed to come and to give testimony", said attorney Jim Lewis.
