Suspect Nikolas Cruz 19 seen getting escorted by law enforcement at Broward County Jail in Ft. Lauderdale Fla. on Thursday

The FBI says it failed to investigate a specific report in January that Nikolas Cruz could be plotting a school shooting. That's when police say Cruz opened fire with a semi-automatic weapon, killing 17 people and sending hundreds of students fleeing into the streets.

President Donald Trump opted not to golf at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday despite the beautiful weather, citing respect for the victims of the Florida school shooting. If this was not enough, subsequently he had posted a YouTube video last year in which he had said he was going to be a professional school shooter.

Finkelstein told ABC News in a detailed phone interview that his decision is based on the reality that the facts are not in question and that Cruz's alleged crimes occurred after an apparent series of breakdowns of systems like law enforcement, social services and education. "No one really told us there was going to be a starting line or a starting gun, they just expected us to go", Haimowitz said.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office and the FBI gave an update Friday on the investigation into the mass shooting that left 17 dead and 15 injured Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The owners of the gun store had completed the entire security protocol required by the Justice Department, which included obtaining a copy of Cruz's driver's license and having him answer a questionnaire about any mental illness he might have. "I believe Speaker Ryan is one of those people".

Next to him on the stage, authorities and religious leaders appealed for unity in the face of this tremendous tragedy.

Trump and other Republicans have heavily criticized the FBI.

Police documents show his mother repeatedly called police to the home.

Others have criticized the president for his tone in the midst of the mourning process.

But on Friday the FBI said someone did report the Florida school shooter less than five weeks ago.

How can a society that has suffered so much gun violence in recent years continue to turn a blind eye to the source of the problem?

In a statement, the FBI said under normal circumstances the warnings would have been assessed as a potential "treat to life".

The community of Parkland, Florida is working to somehow move forward and heal after Wednesday's high school massacre.

Investigators want to learn more about the suspect's motive and are continuing to investigate his past, Israel said.
