  • Florida’s state social services agency investigated Nikolas Cruz in 2016 over violent social media posts.
  • They closed the investigation after two months, determining he was a low risk.
  • Cruz, 19, allegedly killed 17 people when he opened fire on the high school he once attended.

Florida’s state social services agency had previously investigated Nikolas Cruz, long before he set foot on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday and allegedly gunned down 17 people.

The Florida Department of Children and Families opened a file on Cruz in 2016 after being alerted to his Snapchat posts showing him cutting his arms and saying he wanted to buy a gun, according to a state report first obtained by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
