FBI Got Tip About School Shooter Nicolas Cruz, Failed To Investigate

The FBI on Friday admitted it failed to transmit a warning it received about Nikolas Cruz wishing to attack a school to its Miami field office. Cruz is accused of murdering 17 people at a south Florida high school on Wednesday. A โ€œperson closeโ€ to Cruz contacted the FBIโ€™s tipline and โ€œprovided information about Cruzโ€™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.โ€ The FBI said the information was โ€œnot provided to the Miami field office, and no further investigation was conducted at that time.โ€
