Federal Bureau of Investigation was warned last fall about school shooting comments
Feb 16, 2018, 04:51
While the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) continued its investigation into the fatal shooting attack at a Parkland, Florida, high school on 14 February 2018, a YouTube user from MS revealed that he had an online brush with someone with the same name as the suspected gunman.
Earlier, BuzzFeed and the New York Times reported that bail bondsman and Youtube vlogger Ben Bennight informed the FBI's MS office on September 24, after a user named Nikolas Cruzposted the chilling comment below one of his videos.
"This comment said 'I'm going to be a professional school shooter" and I knew that I couldn't just ignore that", he said.
One of those was about the YouTube post about being a professional school shooter, the source said.
In a follow-up press conference, Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge Rob Lasky said that "there [was] no additional information about the time, location or further identifiers about the person who posted the comment".
The blogger said that he was contacted again by agents from both the Missisippi and Miami field offices after Cruz took an AR-15 into his Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. "The FBI conducted database reviews, checks, but was unable to further identify the person who actually made the comment", Lasky said.
Florida law enforcement announced Thursday they've started looking into the suspected school shooter's social media accounts and websites. Bennight does not remember which video it was posted on. The comment was made by a YouTube user by the name of Nikolas Cruz.
Robert Lasky, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Miami Division, confirmed Thursday that the FBI received information previous year about a YouTube comment.
Weekes called Cruz a deeply troubled young man and said Cruz struggled from significant mental illness his entire life.
The FBI was not commenting on Thursday morning, CBS News' Andy Triay reports. They wanted to know if he knew anything more after first reporting the YouTube video a year ago.
