Nikolas Cruz Indicted on 17 Counts of Murder

Nikolas Cruz has been indicted on 17 counts of first-degree murder and 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, prosecutors announced Wednesday afternoon.

Check back for updates.

Broward County Medical Examiner Dr. Craig Mallak and the Parkland family who gave a home to Nikolas Cruz were among the witnesses who testified Wednesday to the grand jury hearing evidence in the Stoneman Douglas mass shooting case.

Cruz, 19, has admitted arming himself with an AR-15 rifle on Valentine's Day and gunning down 17 people and injuring 16 others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Grand jury proceedings are held behind closed doors and state authorities have taken the unprecedented step of escorting witnesses through a secure rear entrance.


James and Kimberly Snead, who let their son's friend, Cruz, live with them for about three months before the shooting, also testified to the Broward County grand jury. Their attorney, Jim Lewis, went into the grand jury room with them.

Lewis and James Snead both wore silver pins bearing the number "17" -- to commemorate the number of victims -- on their lapels.

There's a killer on the road His brain is squirmin' like a toad Take a long holiday Let your children play If ya give this man a ride Sweet family will die Killer on the road, yeah


"This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes, again

Can you picture what will be, so limitless and free
Desperately in need, of some, stranger's hand
In a, desperate land

Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane, all the children are insane"

"The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall"

This is the end, my only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end"
