Newly Released 911 Calls Reveal Parkland Killer Nikolas Cruz Threatened Roommate With Firearm (AUDIO)
Newly released 911 calls reveal killer Nikolas Cruz threatened his roommate with a gun just months before shooting dead 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
New York Post reports:
Cruz admitted to losing his temper to a 911 dispatcher after a fight with Rock Deschamps, whose mother Rocxanne took Cruz and his younger brother in following Lynda Cruz’s Nov. 1 death.
“Hi, I was just at [inaudible] and someone attacked me and they said they were going to gut me if I came back,” Cruz told the dispatcher Nov. 29 in the newly released 911 call, according to WPTV.
Cruz flew into a rage inside Rocxanne’s trailer home in Lantana after misplacing a photo of his dead mom and began throwing things and punching Rock. Rocxanne and Rock called 911 after kicking Cruz out, fearing he’d return with a gun he’d just purchased from Dick’s Sporting Goods.
On Thursday, CNN reported South Florida law enforcement knew Cruz had “used a gun against people,” months before the massacre.
Just months before Nikolas Cruz killed 17 at his former high school in South Florida, the host family who had taken him in immediately after his mother’s death warned local law enforcement that the 19-year-old had “used a gun against people before” and “has put the gun to others’ heads in the past,” according to records obtained by CNN. It’s the latest indication of how law enforcement encountered warning signs about Cruz’s violent behavior before he attacked students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day. CNN has obtained records from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office that detail deputies’ interactions with Cruz in the home where he lived for a few weeks in November, before he moved in with another family, the Sneads, and months before the massacre.
The report raises questions as to why such details were not made public prior to CNN’s town hall on gun control, where Broward Co. Sheriff Scott Israel called for a ban on all assault rifles.
As The Gateway Pundit reported last week, the FBI has said ‘protocols were not followed,’ to escalate a tip the bureau received about Cruz.
“We are still investigating the facts. I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public,” wrote FBI Director Wray.
On Jan. 5, a person close to Florida school shooting suspect contacted FBI tipline and provided info on the suspect’s “gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting,” added Wray.
