PARKLAND, FLORIDA, USA – FEBRUARY 14, 2018 The video shows the school shooting from the perspective of a student hiding in one of the classrooms. Finally, a policeman enters the room and the students are saved. Except for one. He was lying wounded in a pool of blood.
This school shooting was committed by 19-year-old former student Nikolas Cruz. He murdered 17 people and seriously injured another 17. He fired headlong at students and school staff. Unlike other school shootings, Cruz did not commit suicide but fled to nearby Coral Springs, where he contacted students on the phone who gave his location to police and was arrested.
The reason for his act was supposed to be hatred towards people. Before the act, he recorded several recordings on his mobile phone, where he describes personal feelings and enthusiasm for killing. These videos were played during his trial. He was sentenced to life imprisonment.
