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.
Daughter of Man Involved in Fatal 1972 Biden Car Crash Accuses Joe Biden of Falsely Accusing Dad of Driving Drunk
She says he wasn’t a drunk driver. And he was never charged.
The daughter of a man who was involved in a 1972 car crash that resulted in the deaths of Joe Biden’s then-wife, Neilia, and the couple’s one-year old daughter, Naomi, is accusing Joe Biden of falsely blaming her father for the tragic incident.
Deborah Criddle, the daughter of Curtis Dunn, is calling on Joe Biden to “set the record straight” on several claims he’s made in previous years, in which Biden suggested Curtis Dunn was intoxicated or an alcoholic when speaking about the crash. Dunn was never charged or convicted of any traffic or DUI violations stemming from the incident.
Criddle brought up Biden’s accusations towards Dunn in remarks provided to The Sun newspaper on Wednesday.
Criddle says that she became motivated to speak out on Biden’s claims after he repeatedly called Donald Trump a liar during the first presidential debate. She calls such a description as the “pot calling the kettle black,” and that “Biden has got a lot of nerve calling Trump a liar.”
Criddle has spoken out before, in 2008, when Biden made the latest of several inferences suggesting Curtis Dunn was drunk during the crash.
“A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly – and I never pursued it – drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly and killed my daughter instantly and hospitalized my two sons,” Biden had claimed in 2007. He previously suggested that alcohol was involved in the crash in 2001.
A Delaware Superior Court Judge, Jerome O. Herlihy- who investigated the crash at the time as a prosecutor- clarified that there was no reason to believe that any intoxication was involved in the incident when asked about the situation in 2008.
“The rumor about alcohol being involved by either party, especially the truck driver (Dunn), is incorrect,” said the judge in response to Joe Biden’s continued suggestions that Dunn was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
Police investigating the incident ultimately determined that the crash was determined by a t-bone accident in which the vehicle Neilia Biden was driving pulled into the right of way and was struck by a tractor Curtis Dunn was driving.
Criddle is describing Dunn, who died in 1999, as a loving father and family man.
The 1972 car crash was a tragedy for everyone involved, including then-Senator-elect Joe Biden, regardless of the exact circumstances. A one-year old baby and a mother of three children lost their lives. Falsely accusing a party involved of culpability- no matter how slight- without substantiation is a serious matter, one that Biden should answer to regardless of the passage of time since the incident.
