Not many, we venture to say.

Sidney Fischer, a junior who was in a Holocaust history class when the shooter aimed his gun at the window and shot into the room, went on Reddit on Friday to recount his harrowing experience and answer questions. He owned several, and they were unsecured. Snead's son was friends with Cruz and the entire family feels angry, like they were duped.

Cruz used this Instagram account - which touted a bio that read "annihilator" - to post photos of his AR-15 and six other guns, as well as body armor and other tactical gear. James said on GMA that he believed he, James, had the only key to the gun safe.

One clinical professor of psychology at University of Miami says it's important to note that an autism diagnosis should not be viewed as as one of the causes of the devastating event.

"It's also just not smart for Rick Scott to do that because when he did it, I knew this story would be coming up", Scarborough said.

Without any living parents, Nikolas was taken in by the Sneads after Lynda's death.

At school, Cruz routinely fought with teachers, was accused of swearing at staff and was referred for a "threat assessment" in January 2017, two months after the DCF investigation concluded, The New York Times reported Saturday, citing school disciplinary records it obtained. Their story aligns with what the family attorney, Jim Lewis, previously told CNN on their behalf.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, killed fifteen people in a hail of gunfire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.




In more evidence that there had been signs of trouble with Cruz, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said his office had received more than 20 calls about him in the past few years. She said Cruz had been abusive to his girlfriend.

"He was supposed to see a counselor this week", Snead said. He thought Cruz was there to pick up a younger sibling.

They told Cruz he needed to ask permission to take out the guns.

The couple said Cruz did not appear to act out of the ordinary in the hours leading up to the shooting last week. Kimberly said they are having trouble processing the events of last Wednesday.

The night before the shooting, Snead said he noticed nothing unusual.

Mr Runcie later said Cruz was still a student at Broward County Public Schools but declined to provide further details.

On the day of the shooting, Cruz told the family he didn't need a ride to school, saying, "It's Valentine's Day and I don't go to school on Valentine's Day". Kimberly Snead, 49, is a neonatal intensive care nurse who cares for premature and ill babies.

"Everything everybody seems to know we didn't know", James Snead told ABC News' Good Morning America. Snead said he didn't know.
