"Everyone predicted it," a student said about the #Parkland shooting.
The suspected Parkland school shooter has been identified as 19-year-old Nicolas de Jesus Cruz who is a former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Cruz allegedly had two Instagram accounts filled with him showing off guns and other weapons, photos of which are shared below.
From The Daily Mail:
A suspected gunman has been arrested after opening fire on a Florida high school on Ash Wednesday, leaving as many as seven dead and up to 50 injured.
The ‘heavily armed’ shooter, named by police sources to DailyMail.com as former student Nicolas de Jesus Cruz, 19, entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, armed with what appears to be an assault rifle, and began shooting at just after 2pm.
Broward Sheriff confirmed that ‘we have at least 14 victims’ although he did not specify whether they had been injured or killed. Florida Senator Bill Nelson told Fox News there were ‘many deaths’.
Sources told CBS at least seven people had been confirmed dead.
The traumatized students said that once they heard reports of a mass shooting at the school, they knew it would be Cruz.
Matthew Walker, a 17-year-old student at the school, told WFOR-TV that all his classmates ‘knew it was going to be him.’
‘A lot of people were saying it was going to be him,’ he said. ‘A lot of kids threw jokes around saying that he was going to be the one to shoot up the school. It turns out that everyone predicted it. That’s crazy.’
‘He was going class to class just shooting at random kids,’ he said. ‘Everything he posts (on social media) is about weapons. It’s sick.’
Here’s some images floating around on social media via The Gateway Pundit:
He allegedly had two Instagram accounts, “Cruz_nikolas” and “Nikolascruzmakarov.” Both were deleted shortly after he was identified as the shooter. Whether these were his accounts has yet to be confirmed by authorities:
Though he’s wearing a MAGA hat in the photo above, a 19-year-old “Nicolas de Jesus Cruz” is registered as a Democrat according to FLVoters.com.
