Health history of accused Florida shooter shows failure of government agencies

Cruz, who was friends with one of the Sneads' three sons, moved in with the family shortly after his adoptive mother died of pneumonia in November. They said "yes" once and "no" once.

Rogers said there was a failure in intelligence sharing by the bureau, after a tip was received about suspect Nikolas Cruz, but apparently not acted upon, after Wray took charge of the FBI.

"Everything everybody seems to know we didn't know", James Snead told ABC News' Good Morning America.

Though Cruz's former classmates, teachers, and neighbors recalled numerous behavioral problems and run-ins with police over the years, the Sneads said Cruz was respectful and followed their rules "to the T". Kimberly Snead, 49, is a neonatal intensive care nurse who cares for premature and ill babies. "I didn't know what kind they were".

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

However, after being evaluated by Henderson Behavioral Health professionals, the decision was made not to hospitalize him.

Snead said he has nothing to say to Cruz and declined to say what he believes his punishment should be.

"I think I am going to kill people", Cruz wrote in the group, according to CNN, which also quoted an unnamed law enforcement source as saying the suspect bought at least five guns in the past year.

"Ruined his future, ruined the future of 17 others, and their families", Blackstone said. James said on GMA that he believed he, James, had the only key to the gun safe. "And one of the stipulations before moving in was to have a gun safe before he moved in".

Initially after receiving a phone call from his son on Wednesday about a shooting at school, James Snead said he didn't think it could have been Cruz responsible.

But what of the Federal Bureau of Investigation employees, agents or otherwise, whose lack of urgency allows killers to slip through the cracks?

"He was coming into your house and you didn't know how many guns he had?"

James Snead, 48, is a decorated army veteran and a military intelligence analyst who served stints in the Middle East between 1988 and 1996.

"I knew he had [an] assault rifle, but I knew he used it out hunting", James said.

Cruz's attorneys at the Broward County Public Defender's Office did not return requests for comment on that or the 2016 report by Florida's Department of Children and Families. "I really wanted to strangle him, more than anything".
