Nicolas Cruz, 19, was also identified as the gunman by the Miami Herald.
According to the Herald, citing a “law-enforcement source,” Cruz is a former student who had been identified as a potential threat to the school. He had been expelled.
“We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him,” said math teacher Jim Gard, who told the Herald that Cruz had been in his class last year.
“There were problems with him last year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus,” the teacher told the Herald.
