In 2016, one call specifying that Cruz had planned to "shoot up" his high school was forwarded to the school resource officer, Scot Peterson.

Peterson recently resigned following a scathing video revealing he stood outside the school and stayed idle as students were being murdered.

Before resigning, the Sheriff's Office had suspended him pending an investigation into his behavior during the shooting and the signs leading up to that tragic day.


On November 30, 2017, one individual called the Sheriff's Office to report that a "school shooter" was in the making and that he was collecting weapons, according to records BuzzFeed obtained. The caller added that he was concerned Cruz would "kill himself."

Then on February 14, Cruz walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and opened fire. Seventeen were killed and over 50 were injured.
