Mass murder in Florida

He used smoke bombs to cause panic and trigger a fire siren, hoping that in the corridors of the school will gather a crowd, which he’ll open fire.
In total, Cruz managed to make more than 40 shots, killing 17 people and injuring another 16. Then mingled with the crowd and disappeared from the scene. Later, he was arrested in the nearby town of coral springs, about 2 km from the crime scene. During the arrest, he was slightly wounded.
At the first interrogation, the killer said that the shot «for fun». He also said that he had repeatedly threatened to come with weapons in the school, but other students laughed at him and did not believe that this could happen.
According to police and FBI that the killer was well prepared for the attack and acted alone. The FBI acknowledged the error associated with ignoring the warnings about the threats from the cruise.
