Zachary Cruz, the brother of confessed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz, has been arrested today for trespassing at that same school.
According to CBS Miami, the probable cause affidavit stated that the 18-year-old Cruz wanted to “reflect on the school shooting and soak it in,” and that he “surpassed all locked doors and gates.”
He was riding his skateboard around campus when he was arrested. The police report states that Cruz had received “prior warnings by school officials to refrain from entering the school campus.”
Nikolas Cruz, age 19, is currently awaiting trial for the February 14, 2018 shooting, which left 17 students and teachers dead.
A reporter for ABC’s Miami affiliate posted Cruz’s booking photo and the police report. Media reports have confirmed that he was not currently a student at the school.
