According to reports, the suspect in the Florida school shooting was a "troubled" student.
Staff at the school were apparently aware he was a threat to students, and wouldn't allow him to even have a backpack at school.
nypost.com reports: “He’s been a troubled kid, and he’s always had a certain amount of issues going on,” the boy explained. “He shot guns because he felt it gave him, I guess, an exhilarating feeling.”
The shooter — identified as Nicolas Cruz, 19 — had been banned from carrying a backpack on campus due to his alleged issues, the Miami Herald reports.

“There were problems with him last year threatening students,” he said. “I guess he was asked to leave campus.”
