Florida shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz charged with murder
Nikolas Cruz has been charged with murder after one of the deadliest school shootings in recent American history. The 19-year-old is alleged to have gunned down 17 people with a semiautomatic rifle. The authorities have said the AR-15 used in the attack was purchased legally at a store in Florida.
Family lawyer Jim Lewis said Cruz had brought his own AR-15 along with his other belongings when he moved home. According to the New York Times, the AR-15 is easier to buy than a handgun in Florida, and has become a favourite weapon among mass killers.
