"My name’s Nik and I’m going to be the next school shooter of 2018," Cruz said in the February 14 video authorities released on Wednesday. "My goal is at least 20 people with an AR-15 and a couple tracer rounds. Location is Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida. It’s going to be a big event and when you see me on the news, you’ll all know who I am. You’re all going to die. Can’t wait."
On February 14, the 19-year old Cruz, a former student, used firearms he legally purchased to kill 17 students and educators at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
