A senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School claimed that she saw and spoke with alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz at the scene of the crime while her school was being evacuated.
Alexa Miednik spoke with Cruz but “did not see a gun,” according to one local reporter. During her conversation with Cruz, shots were still ringing out, but they were coming from a different part of the school.
“No, definitely not…Because when shots were fired, I saw him after the fact. And the shots were coming from the other part of the building. So there definitely had to be two shooters involved, I believe,” Miednik said.
“As we were walking, the whole class together, I actually was speaking to the suspect, Nikolas Cruz. And as I was speaking to him, he seemed very…he was troubled in middle school, so I kind of joked to him and said ‘I’m surprised you weren’t the one who did it,’ and he just gave me a ‘Huh?’,” Miednik said.

Nikolas Cruz was arrested and stands accused of killing at least 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where he used to be a student.
Cruz was expelled from the school. Law enforcement reportedly arrested him right outside a house near the high school campus, and sources say Cruz might have escaped the school after the shooting by blending in with fellow students.
Cruz’s mother is reportedly dead and he was living with a friend’s family.
The media has largely relied on three unnamed former schoolmates of Cruz, who have detailed in mainstream news articles his alleged fondness for guns and past disciplinary issues, which involve kicking a window in middle school.
Three unnamed former schoolmates also told ABC News that Cruz was part of a white supremacist group called Republic of Florida, which the group’s purported leader also claimed, according to the Anti-Defamation League. But a mainstream Forbes reporter and others have cast doubt on that claim.
The first unnamed former classmate of Cruz to speak to the media — who said that he went to alternative school with Cruz after Cruz was kicked out of high school — claimed that Cruz was fond of guns and that he knew the layout of the high school and what to do in a “fire drill” situation. A fire drill occurred at the school earlier in the day, and students and parents also said that they expected another drill — possibly an active shooter drill — at the school that same day. CBS 4 in Miami, which broadcast the former classmate’s claims, did not provide the former classmate’s name.

NEW: "We thought it was a drill," student evacuated from Parkland, Florida, high school tells CBS News. "We already had one earlier this morning…and then we heard gunshots; some students thought it was not that serious." https://t.co/1Y5NBGZMdE pic.twitter.com/FWVnssTSxK

The Broward County Sherriff’s Office stated that it cannot confirm a second shooter “at this time,” and has been mum regarding online speculation on the case.
Shipments of 20,000+ Fake US Driver’s Licenses From China Intercepted at Chicago Airport
For use in election fraud?
Customs authorities have intercepted more than a 1,000 individual shipments containing almost 20,000 fraudulent driver’s licenses at Chicago O’Hare Airport this year alone.
19,888 fake US driver’s licenses have been caught in smuggling busts at the airport, distributed throughout 1,513 fraudulent shipments.
Fox 5 New York is reporting that the fake ID’s are coming from mainland China, Hong Kong, South Korea, and the UK.
“These counterfeit driver’s licenses can lead to disastrous consequences,” Customs and Border Patrol’s Ralph Piccirilli said in a statement. “Criminal organizations use these counterfeit IDs to avoid attracting attention to their illegal activities.”
Customs officials have described the fake Chinese ID’s as extremely realistic and well-made, stating that the barcode on the fake documents passes electronic verification checks.
If this many fake ID’s are coming in at one airport alone, there’s a significant possibility that many more fake documents are being smuggled into the country at other airports. It’s entirely unclear what these ID’s are being used for- most of the bars that underage college kids would enter to drink alcohol in are closed. There’s a very real possibility the Chinese-made fake ID’s could be an integral part of an election fraud operation. Even the most strict voter ID states such as Arizona accept a driver’s license as proof of voter registration and eligibility.
Customs officers stationed at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport are reporting that they’ve busted more than 2,000 fake ID’s since 2019, describing a surge in the smuggling of fake driver’s licenses.
