The FBI has said that it failed to follow up on an anonymous warning regarding Nicholas Cruz, the Florida shooter’s, behavior.
The FBI’s Public Access Line did not properly address a warning from a month ago and didn’t pass the tip on for further investigation, despite it being protocol to do so.
The anonymous warning provided “information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behaviour, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting“, according to the Agency.
Cruz attacked Parkland School, Florida, killing 17 and injuring many others in what is the deadliest school shooting since 2012.
