Nikolas Cruz, 19, the shooter and ex-high school student at Marjory High, surrendered quietly to police, Israel reported.
“There was a time when he did attend the school,” Israel said. “I don’t know why he left, I don’t know when he left.”
“We have already begun to dissect his websites and things on social media that he was on and some of the things… are very, very disturbing,” Israel said.
“If a person is predisposed to commit such a horrific event by going to a school and shooting people… there’s not anybody or not a lot law enforcement can do about it.”
A teacher at the school said Cruz had been identified previously as a potential threat to his classmates.
“We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him,” math teacher Jim Gard said in a Miami Herald interview.
