Cruz was arrested and charged with trespassing Monday afternoon at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. By this time, Deschamps also had a 5-year-old son.

Zachary Cruz told the arresting deputy that he was there to "reflect on the school shooting and to soak it in", according to the report.

Gov. Rick Scott ordered the troopers to begin assisting sheriff's deputies in patrolling Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High on Thursday.

"He is being held for who he is related to, not for anything he did", Kimok said. The motion says there were about 70 surveillance cameras at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when the massacre took place February 14 and many appear to show the actions of police officers and deputies. The sergeant knocked on the window of Carotti's patrol auto to wake him up.

A student notified a sergeant that Deputy Moises Carotti appeared to be asleep in his auto just after 5 p.m. on Monday, The Sun Sentinel reported.

Carotti's alleged on-duty nap is the latest in a string of embarrassments for the Broward Couny Sheriff's Office.

A Great Mills school resource officer leaped into action and killed the shooter, authorities said.

The student posting pictures while carrying a pistol has been sent for psychological evaluation.

The members of the 16-member commission were announced Tuesday. A person intent on committing an atrocity would find his or her way around them, he said in an interview last month.

Scott also appointed Ryan Petty and Andrew Pollack to the commission.

"The words School & Shooting should not be next to each other". The Florida Department of Law Enforcement commissioner will also serve on the board.

Since the boys' adoptive mother died in November, the teen has been staying with a family friend, Rocxanne Deschamps, in a suburban Palm Beach County mobile home. Her calls to police about suspicious behavior resulted in no action.

The strengthened security comes three days after suspect Nikolas Cruz's younger brother, Zachary Cruz, was arrested on trespassing charges while riding his skateboard on campus.

And should Zachary post bail, he would be mandated to wear a Global Positioning System ankle monitoring device.

"He has been heard and observed discussing how popular his brother is now, that his face is everywhere and his name is national", Assistant State Attorney Saranell Murphy said of Zachary Cruz. The order would prohibit Cruz from possessing or acquiring guns for a period of time that would be determined by a judge. However, she was again told by police that there was nothing unlawful in what he was doing. When he was done, 17 people were killed and 15 others were injured. "I asked them if we could stop him from getting the gun that he purchased".

Hemmert says his 14-year-old daughter helped him build one of the military-style assault rifles from scratch. Her father, Scott, told the court his daughter had been "terrified" of going to school.

While the survivors of the shooting are trying to move on, Zachary claimed to feel responsible for the lives lost that day.
