The FBI has detailed a series of mistakes it made in the handling of tips about the gunman who killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich made the comments in a closed briefing on Tuesday with members of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.
In a press release made available on Wednesday, Bowdich cited two tips that the FBI received about 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz in September 2017 and in January 2018 that were mishandled.
The first was an internet tip reported to the FBI in September 2017 that highlighted a YouTube account named ‘nikolas cruz’.
In response to a blogger’s video was the comment: ‘Im [sic] going to be a professional school shooter.’
