The brother of the man who admitted to perpetrating the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has been arrested for trespassing on the school’s campus, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
Zachary Cruz was on the school’s property after he’d been told to stay away from the area. His brother, Nikolas Cruz, has confessed to the mass shooting that killed 17 people at the school on Feb. 14.
WSVN reports: Zachary Cruz, 18, reportedly rode his skateboard through the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School campus on Monday afternoon, getting past locked gates.
According to the arrest report, Zachary Cruz told deputies he wanted to “reflect on the school shooting and soak it in.” Deputies said officials had previously warned him to stay away from the school.
Deputies said Cruz “surpassed all locked doors and gates and proceeded to ride his skateboard through school grounds.” The incident was captured on security cameras on campus.
