  • First host family: School shooter threatened others with gun

Cruz and his little brother Zachary moved-in with family friend Rocxanne Deschamps after mother Lynda Cruz died in November from pneumonia. Rocxanne Deschamps' son, Rock, 22, called 911 to report that an "adopted 19-year-old son" had possibly hidden a "gun in the backyard", according to a dispatcher's notes.

Rock interrupted Cruz and a fight broke out between them, according to the documents.

Lynda Cruz also sold her Parkland home for $575,000, Broward County property records obtained by the Herald showed.

Rocxanne Deschamps, the Florida woman who took in Nikolas Cruz and his younger brother Zachary, filed court papers asking to be named the administrator of the reported $800,000 estate left by their adoptive mother, who died in November 2017.

A Palm Beach deputy responded to the scene, but he didn't arrest anyone.

Cruz is accused of using an AR-15 that he legally purchased to kill 17 people and wound more than a dozen others on Valentine's Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

A man inside the home, 22-year-old Rock Deschamps, tried restraining Cruz, but both sides threw punches. Cruz apologized for losing his temper. Deschamps signed a form saying he would not prosecute.

Noah took to Instagram to say: "My mother is a powerful woman who could easily be one of the handsome soldiers in Wakanda". Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o will produce and star in a film adaptation of Trevor Noah's memoir Born a Crime .

Cruz's windfall comes after both of his adoptive parents died - Lynda Cruz of respiratory illness late a year ago, and Roger Cruz of heart failure in 2004.

In Broward County, deputies went to the Cruz family home there nearly 40 times between 2010 and January 2017, CNN reported, citing public documents. All we can say for certain is that because the tip wasn't passed on, there was no FBI investigation and no chance for anyone to connected the dots in time.

"The boy was stoic". He said: "I'm upset because nobody came, and nobody cares about my mother,"' Gold said. He reportedly told them that he was upset over his mother's death, and he and Rock later reconciled.

'But I felt awful.

The social worker told dispatchers the teen had not shown up for class since his mother died, but added he "was never dis-enrolled from school in Broward to attend any other school".

Alternatively, Cruz's public defenders could charge him for reimbursement whenever he "comes into money", even if the case is over by that point, retired Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Scott Silverman told the Herald. The report does not say if deputies had any further contact.

In the wake of the Valentine's Day mass shooting, there has been intense public scrutiny of why Cruz was not identified as an imminent threat despite his encounters with law enforcement. It appears Deschamps is trying to make a play to keep Zachary's part of his mother's estate separate from Nikolas and therefore not responsible for any financial damages that will surely be filed by the families of the victims, as well as those that survived with injuries.
