Alleged Florida high school shooter has $800000 inheritance, reports say

Property records show the ladies were neighbors who lived on the same block.

During Cruz's brief stay in Palm Beach County, deputies were called to the trailer three times in one month for a fight, a welfare check and report of a weapon.

Nikolas Cruz, the man charged with killing 17 people at a Florida high school, clashed with a host family he used to live with.

Deschamps told deputies Cruz had been "going through a lot" with the loss of his mother and "did not want [Cruz] to go to jail". Eventually, Deschamps called 911. Rocxanne Deschamps' son, Rock, 22, called 911 to report that an "adopted 19-year-old son" had possibly hidden a "gun in the backyard", according to a dispatcher's notes.

There is no reference to guns in the offense report, but the dispatch log indicates that Cruz told deputies there were guns inside the home. Rock Deschamps told law enforcement "there were no weapons allowed in the household", the report said. There is no reason that he should have been able to get his hands on the weapons he did.

The estate in question was that of Nikolas Cruz's father and Lynda Cruz was seeking to transfer the family's home into her name to sell it, according to court documents obtained by ABC News. She requested deputy assistance. "He has put the gun to others heads in the past". This is not the first time, and he did that to his mom, and his mom died.

She frantically told the operator that he used weapons to threaten people in the past and said he had put the barrel to someone's head before.

Then, while Deschamps is on the phone with dispatchers, another 911 call comes in. However, the Sneads now believe Cruz had kept a key for himself. She warned the police dispatcher that Cruz said "he was going to get his gun and come back", records show. "In the public defender's office, nobody has ever come up to me and said, 'Hey Howard, our client may be worth $800,000'". Had the Federal Bureau of Investigation followed up on the tip it received in January, it would have been able to locate the calls from November, calls in which Cruz was described as violent, as having made threats involving his guns, and as having put a gun to "others heads in the past".

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

When the police arrived after that call, they spoke to both Rock Deschamps and Nikolas Cruz.

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

According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office offense report from November 29, Rock Deschamps called 911 after Cruz "began punching walls and breaking items inside the home".

Finkelstein said his office was assigned by the court to defend Cruz after he filled out an application for criminal indigent status the day after he was arrested in the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead.

The social worker told dispatchers the teen had not shown up for class since his mother died, but added he "was never dis-enrolled from school in Broward to attend any other school".

Deputies were called again the next day on November 28th when the fight between Cruz and Rock Deschamps broke out.
