FBI starts review of its handling of 'professional school shooter' tip on YouTube
The comment was posted under a Discovery UK documentary about the 1966 Texas University shooting in 2017.
"I'm going to be a professional school shooter,"(sic) the now-deleted comment read. “I am going to what he did.”
FBI special agent Robert Lasky said in a press briefing on Thursday that the FBI had investigated the comment but had been unable to identify the author.
“No other information was included with that comment which would indicate a time location or the true identity of the person who made the comment,” FBI Special Agent Robert Lasky told reporters.
Nikolas Cruz walked into the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, near Miami, on Wednesday and opened fire with an AR-15-style assault rifle.
Cruz had a history of mental health issues and had been expelled from the school, yet he was able to obtain the gun legally.
