Nikolas Cruz pleads guilty to 17 murders in Parkland school shooting massacre

October 20, 2021

Nikolas Cruz has pleaded guilty to the murders of 17 people killed in the 2018 high school massacre in Parkland, Florida.

The 23-year-old entered his pleas in a courtroom in front of a dozen relatives of victims after answering a long list of questions from Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer aimed at confirming his mental competency.

He was charged with 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder for those wounded in the 14 February 2018 attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, just outside Fort Lauderdale.

Cruz pleaded guilty on all counts.

Fourteen of those who died were students, and three were staff.
