Deputies Called to Florida Shooter's Home Weeks Before

Deputies Called to Florida Shooter's Home Weeks Before

"(Cruz) bought a gun from Dick's last week and is now going to pick it up", Deschamps' mother told a 911 dispatcher, according to a log of the call contained in the report.

According to a deputies' report cited by WPTV, Cruz punched a hole in the wall of the trailer, where he was living in Lantana, Fla., and started to "break things".

No charges were filed against Cruz because, the Deschamps told investigators, they felt bad for him because he had just lost his mother. According to the records obtained by CNN, the woman told police that "he has put the gun to others heads in the past".

The incident was one of three domestic dispute calls to the home in less than a month for deputies.

In documents filed in probate court the day after the mass shooting, Deschamps' attorney, Audra Simovitch, petitioned to have Deschamps appointed a personal representative of Lynda Cruz's estate, claiming an interest in the estate "as a family friend ... who is caring for a 50% minor beneficiary", meaning Cruz's younger brother.

When deputies arrived, Cruz was sitting in the neighborhood park "nervous and calm", according to the report and "was sorry for losing his temper".

Rocxanne Deschamps told the dispatcher that Cruz had "bought tons of ammo" and "has used a gun against ppl before", the notes said.

In her two-page court filing, Deschamps said she was a family friend of the Cruz brothers' mom who took the boys in after Lynda died in November.

Two days before deputies went to the home for a domestic dispute involving a child custody issue between Rocxanne Deschamps and her ex-boyfriend on October 29, deputies had been called to the same address for an earlier incident involving the estranged couple. Another time they came for a welfare check and still another for a report of a weapon.

There were also investigations by the sheriff's department and the Department of Child and Family Services after Cruz cut his arms on Snapchat and said he wanted to buy a gun. "To the contrary, he appears to be better off with his father at the present time" because of the way Rocxanne was behaving, the deputy wrote.

The Public Defender's Office is representing Cruz, who faces 17 counts of premeditated murder for the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

And now, WPTV is reporting Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies responded three times to the mobile home during his short stay.

However, this is not believed to be the AR-15 rifle used in the Parkland slayings, the Post added.

"He was the only person that we could think of that would do something like this", she said.

Lynda was the adopted mother to 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz and 17-year-old Zachary Cruz.
