Suspected Stoneman Douglas gunman in court for bond hearing


The teen accused of killing 17 people and wounding 17 others at Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine's Day is set to appear in court Friday afternoon.

The bond hearing comes two days after a grand jury indicted Nikolas Cruz on 17 counts of first degree murder and 17 counts of attempted murder.

Investigators said Cruz took an Uber to the high school where he opened fire on students and staff with an AR-15, a weapon he purchased legally. Police arrested him just over an hour after the shooting.

On Thursday, the Broward County Sheriff's Office released a new timeline and 911 calls from the day of the school shooting. A judge is set to make a decision on whether to make security video from outside the school available to the media.

The mass school shooting led to a big push for changes to gun laws and school security in Florida. Students held protests and spoke with lawmakers in Tallahassee.

Gov. Scott will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. where he's expected to make an announcement on a $500M school safety plan that he tasked lawmakers to approve.
