Florida school shooting: Sessions orders 'immediate' review of Federal Bureau of Investigation

Also yesterday, mourners gathered for the first funeral for a shooting victim, packing the Star of David chapel to remember Alyssa Alhadeff (14).

"President Trump, Barron goes to school".

The earliest known tip to the bureau came from a bail bondsman in MS who told the FBI in September about a worrying comment left on his YouTube channel from a "nikolas cruz" saying "Im going to be a professional school shooter".

Leaders including US President Donald Trump have linked mental illness to Wednesday's violence, suggesting that it was the public's responsibility to warn officials of such dangers.

Wednesday, 19-year-old Cruz opened fire at the school that expelled him, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

In more evidence that there had been signs of trouble with Cruz, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said his office had received more than 20 calls about him in the past few years.

A trial would serve no objective but to prolong the inevitable instead of allowing the community to start the process of healing, Finkelstein said. I would have said, 'Without me, they never would have found him, ' " prompting laughter in the room. Both the House and Senate need to immediately initiate their own investigations into the FBI's protocols for ensuring tips from the public about potential killers are followed through. A diamond in the rough, so to speak, somebody who is energetic and positive.

Mr Trump tweeted on Friday morning that he would leave for Florida later in the day to meet people whose "lives had been totally shattered" by the shooting.

There were no further details about the "voices". "This experience was so traumatizing to the point where now I can't even fathom the idea of a gun in my house or on my bodice", she said, noting that she had planned to spend her 18th birthday at a gun range learning how to shoot.

For his part, Wray expressed regret to the families of the shooting victims. You can stop the guns from getting into these children's hands.

Broward County schools chief Robert Runcie said Thursday that the school board had no inkling of the danger posed by the former student.

As with previous mass shootings, the focus of gun control advocates was the easy availability of the AR-15, a civilian version of the United States military's M16.

Authorities confirmed that the gun was purchased legally. When Thorne tried to continue, security escorted her out as she chanted "No more guns!"

Authorities have not described any specific motive, except to say that Cruz had been kicked out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which has about 3,000 students and serves an affluent suburb where the median home price is almost $600,000.

"What I understand is that was answered appropriately", said Stuart Kaplan, an attorney who also represents Sunrise Tactical Supply. "It depends on how he handles the gun laws".

Mr Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. His lawyers at the public defender's office say he is deeply troubled and remorseful over the shooting. "He's sad, he's mournful, he's remorseful". He's expected to thank first responders to the horrific high school shooting and also come face-to-face with parents, survivors and others, some of whom have angrily called for firm action to prevent future assaults.
