Brother of Stoneman Douglas Shooter Arrested For Trespassing Onto School Grounds

Zachary Cruz, the brother of confessed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz, was arrested on Monday afternoon for trespassing onto the high school’s campus in Parkland.

According to reports and the Broward County Public Schools statement following his arrest, the 18-year-old was warned several times by school officials not to enter the school campus. However, “surpass[ing] all locked doors and gates,” Cruz was seen riding his skateboard through the campus. The reason he unlawfully entered the school property, according to the arrest report, was to “reflect on the school shooting and soak it in.”

His arrest comes about a month after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in which Cruz’s younger brother, Nikolas, entered the high school and killed 17 people with an AR-15 rifle, of which 14 were students and 3 were faculty members.
