'Shame on you,' student tells Trump at Florida anti-gun rally

"The FBI has failed", said Lewis Mizen, a 17-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the attack took place.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, is charged with committing multiple murders on Wednesday at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

President Donald Trump lashed out late on Saturday at the Federal Bureau of Investigation for missing signs that could have prevented the shooting, and accused the agency on Twitter of "spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the (2016) Trump campaign".

"This certainly is the type of case the death penalty was designed for", State Attorney Michael J. Satz said. Days after the killings, a sombre series of vigils and funerals were being held in and around Parkland, a Fort Lauderdale suburb of about 32,000 people.

A person who was close to Cruz called the FBI's tip line on January 5 and provided information about Cruz's weapons and his erratic behavior, including his disturbing social media posts. The agency concluded Cruz had not been mistreated by his mother, was receiving adequate care from a mental health counselor and was attending school.

A crisis counsellor told the DCF investigator he had visited the school and that he did not believe Cruz was a danger to himself or others.

The teen also talked about his love for guns and violence telling members that he used his $330 paycheck to buy body armor.

Stunned by last week's bloodiest high school shooting in US history, students across the country were mobilizing on Sunday for stronger gun laws, while Florida officials contemplated when to reopen their badly shaken school. They also accused some politicians of being more concerned about protecting the firearms lobby than children.

Mr Sorensen's position did not require a security clearance and that his background check had not been completed. White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley adamantly denied that Kelly had offered to resign in any way.

At a nearby gunshow, attendees said new laws would not have prevented the massacre, adding gun rights are protected by the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

The agency said the information from the caller should have been "assessed as a potential threat to life" and should have been forwarded to its Miami field office, "where appropriate investigative steps would have been taken".

Three faculty members and 14 students were killed in what is now the eighteenth school shooting since the beginning of 2018.

At Sunday's rally, organizers urged the crowd to drop its support for politicians who get funding from the National Rifle Association, a nationwide group that advocates for gun rights.

He and some other Republican political leaders have said mental illness prompted the massacre. In February 2014, while in 8th grade, Cruz was transferred to a special school for children with emotional and behavioural issues.

As more details emerged on the suspect, CNN reported that Cruz posted disparaging comments about Jews, African Americans and gays in a private chat group on the social media network Instagram.

"At this point, I don't even know if the adults in power who are funded by the NRA, I don't think we need them anymore, because they are going to be gone by the midterm election, " Gonzalez said on "Face the Nation" on CBS.

Michael Udine, a commissioner in Broward County, Florida, said he told the president Saturday afternoon that the students "are extremely motivated and well spoken and they are going to be demanding change in Washington and Tallahassee".

"This kid exhibited every single known red flag, from killing animals to having a cache of weapons to disruptive behaviour to saying he wanted to be a school shooter", the county's public defender, Howard Finkelstein, told the New York Times.
