The brother of Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old charged with the shooting rampage at a Parkland, Florida, high school last month, was arrested Monday for allegedly trespassing on the school’s campus, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
Zachary Cruz, 18, told deputies he skateboarded through the grounds of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School because he wanted to “reflect on the school shooting and soak it in,” according to his arrest report. He allegedly bypassing the campus’ locked doors and gates despite previous warnings by school officials to stay off the property, officials said.
Broward County prosecutors last week said they would seek a death sentence for Nikolas Cruz, who earlier this month was indicted by a grand jury on 34 counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder in the Feb. 14 massacre, which killed 17 people and injured the same number.
