Nikolas Cruz On Trial for the Stoneman Marjorie High School Massacre
In the wake of the February the 14th tragedy that claimed the life of 17 people, more and more details about Nikolas Cruz, the confessed Florida gunman, emerge.
A recent police report notes that Cruz felt ill after being taken into custody. The timeline provided by the detectives reveals that on the 14th of February, Nikolas Cruz, armed with an assault-style rifle and several ammo containers, opened fire in the freshman section at 2:21 p.m.
After gunning down 17 students and faculty members, the suspect disposed of his weapons and attempted to blend in with the rest of the students who were being evacuated by the authorities.
Curiously enough, the police report notes that minutes after his escape, Cruz stepped inside a Subway restaurant from where he purchased a soft drink. Security footage places Nikolas Cruz at the Parkland Subway at 2:50 p.m.
After finishing his drink, Cruz left Subway and went to a nearby McDonald’s where he simply sat a table. According to the authorities, Cruz’s official time of arrest was 4 p.m.
During his apprehension, the Florida gunman complained about feeling ill. With several police officers holding him up, Cruz allegedly vomited a clear liquid and hyperventilated. A team of paramedics was standing by to assist the gunman.
Meanwhile, Cruz’s trial goes merrily on, with the 19-year-old called to answer for 17 counts of first-degree murder and multiple counts of attempted murder. As the prosecutors ask for the death penalty, Cruz’s attorney wants to have the gunman committed to a mental institution.
