The suspect in the Florida school shooting on Wednesday, identified as former student Nicolas De Jesus Cruz, 19, was reportedly obsessed with guns, and his Instagram account was filled with photos of guns, knives and photos of himself wearing black masks and holding guns.

Cruz’s Instagram account has now been taken down, but Heavy and other outlets have released screenshots from the killer’s page.

Heavy reported:

Using the name Nikolas Cruz, the suspect posted several photos in 2016 and 2015 on his Instagram page of weapons and made statements about wanting to buy guns. The page has since been deleted, but Heavy confirmed with sources who know Cruz that the page belonged to him.

In 2016, he posted a photo of a shotgun he said he wanted to buy.

“I plan on getting this but I need more information on it so if someone could give advice on how much I’m spending and background cheeks please to god let me know,” he wrote in 2016.

In 2015, he posted a screenshot of a Google search for the phrase, “what does allahu akbar.” He then wrote in the caption, “Well at least we now know what it means when a sand durka says “allahu Akbar” ??????”

Cruz had been in trouble at the school before.

“We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him,” said math teacher Jim Gard, who said 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 following photos, allegedly from Cruz’s Instagram account, were provided by Heavy.
