“That’s where I’m gonna shoot at. This tree. And the grass over there. This is gonna be fun,” Nikolas Cruz, 19, had stated in a video he created and posted on YouTube. This video was alerted to the authorities, but was not ever investigated, according to cnn.com.

The FBI has been questioned to why they weren’t concerned by this video or the other dark things Cruz had posted on various social medias. They couldn’t give an answer to the questioning, said an inside source of cnn.com.

Of the 17 who were killed, 14 were students and 3 were staff members. “‘I’m so thankful that he was there to help everybody who did live in that classroom because he was in the doorway and the door was still open and the shooter probably didn’t know we were still in there because Mr. Beigel was laying on the floor…,’” a student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school had said about Mr. Biegel, a teacher who had passed, according to foxnews.com.

The students who had survived the massacre have gone back to school. Some students, however, vow to never go back until gun laws change, according to thewashingtonpost.com.

The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has everyone questioning what to do if it happens at one of PYLUSD’s schools. “Students should follow the directions of any teacher or staff member present.  If they are outdoors during a lockdown, they should report to the nearest building or classroom.  If a door is locked, go to the next one,” Mr. Marshall, Assistant Principal advised in an interview with the Matador Messenger.
