More than a year before Nikolas Cruz walked into his former high school in Parkland, Florida and went on a shooting rampage, killing 17 people, he had gotten into a huge fight with fellow students at school, and was expelled as a result.
ABC News has just released cell phone video footage from that fight.
In the Sept. 20, 2016, footage, obtained by ABC station WPLG, Cruz can be seen in the courtyard of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School wearing khakis, a white printed short-sleeved T-shirt and a dark bandana around his neck.
The blurry video appears to show Cruz flailing his arms as other students charge him and cause him to slip.
Cruz was suspended for two days following the fight. It’s one of five documented incidents that Marjory Stoneman Douglas officials claim led to Cruz being forced to transfer to another high school last February.
