Yesterday was a tragic day for many as a shooting took place at a Florida high school that left at least 17 people dead.
The suspected shooter was identified as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz. In our last update, Cruz was taken into custody shortly following the tragedy.
Now, it’s being reported that he has been booked at Broward County Jail early Thursday, and has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

 The authorities said the AR-15 rifle that Mr. Cruz used in the attack was purchased legally. “No laws were violated in the procurement of this weapon,” said Peter J. Forcelli, the special agent in charge for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Miami.
