Nikolas Cruz

Cruz killed 17 students and teachers during a shooting rampage at a Parkland, Florida high school Wednesday.

"He was in the doorway and the door was still open and the shooter probably didn't know we were in there because he was lying on the floor".

Students huddled in horror in their classrooms, with some of them training their mobile phones on the carnage, capturing sprawled bodies, screams and gunfire that began with a few shots and then continued.

An activist and teacher who wants gun control laws was removed from a Miami-area GOP fundraiser after confronting House Speaker Paul Ryan about this week's mass shooting at a Florida school. The outlet obtained recordings of the communications between first responders, detailing how they organized their manhunt for Cruz. It is the third-deadliest school shooting in American history.

He briefly paused as mourners, punched by the rawness of his words, began to wail. "Our kids should be safe".

The disclosure spread angry disbelief among residents of the Miami suburb of Parkland where Wednesday's massacre unfolded, and led Florida's governor Rick Scott to call for FBI chief Christopher Wray to resign. The FBI says the caller expressed concerns Cruz could attack a school. The FBI determined "protocols were not followed" when a tip was phoned into the FBI's public access line, but was never forwarded to the FBI's Miami field office and received no further investigation.

Cruz's social media posts show him posing with guns, knives and dead animals, leaving little question that the 19-year-old was a potential threat.

Also, a video blogger said he warned the FBI in September about a possible school shooting threat from a YouTube user with the same name as Cruz. But the casualties of school shootings just don't include those killed or wounded.

The female high school student then left the campus and walked home. Some took politicians to task on Twitter. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. He told the Daily Beast that Cruz "wasn't particularly active" in his group but came to Tallahassee with a "secretive cell" from Clearwater, Florida.

The FBI and Department of Justice are investigating why the tip about Cruz was not sent to field agents.

The president focused instead on offering sympathy to the families of the victims and the need to provide better mental health care. There had been a fire drill earlier in the day, causing many students to assume another one was happening when the gunman pulled the alarm.
