Parkland Suspect to Police: 'I'm Dealing With a Bunch of Things'Newser — Michael Harthorne
Local law enforcement also released tapes and logs of 23 911 calls regarding Cruz made over the past 10 years, NPR reports. Fifteen of the calls were made by Cruz's late-mother, and the Broward County Sheriff's Office's response to two of the calls is being investigated. Two years before the Feb. 14 shooting, one caller said Cruz was planning to shoot up his school. A caller last November warned Cruz "is collecting guns" and "could be a school shooter in the making." One of the 911 calls came from Cruz himself after an altercation with the son of a woman with whom he was staying after his mother's death, according to WPTV. “The thing is, I lost my mother a couple days ago, so, like, I’m dealing with a bunch of things right now," Cruz said.
The woman also made a 911 call during the incident, saying, "All he wants is his gun, and that's all he cares about is his gun."
