The teenager accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school on Wednesday has confessed to the shooting.
Nikolas Cruz, 19, used to attend Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, but, he was expelled for disciplinary reasons.
On Valentine’s day, Mr Cruz, a teenager with an obsession for guns, said he “entered the school campus armed with a AR-15 and began shooting students that he saw on the hallways and on the school grounds.”
17 people died from the attack.
The 19-year-old, who according to the Anti-Defamation League has links with white supremacists, made a confession which is contained in an affidavit from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
The teenager, who has been charged with 17-counts of first degree premeditated murder, was able to flee from the scene by blending in with fleeing students.
