Florida passed a new law, the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program, named after the coach at Stoneman Douglas who died while protecting students, that allows certain school staff members to carry a firearm.

"Mr. Cruz does not want those funds, whatever money that he is entitled to", said attorney Melissa McNeill.

The mass shooter that opened fire at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School wants his victims to have his inheritance, hoping the money could help "heal the community" according to his lawyer.

Senior Chinese Official to Lead Art Troupe to North Korea
China, the North's only ally and main economic benefactor, has been implementing tough global sanctions against North Korea. Song Tao, the head of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee's global department, will lead the mission.

At a court hearing on Wednesday, Broward County Judge Elizabeth Scherer sought to determine whether Cruz - who has so far been represented by public defenders - is able to pay for his own defence.

The suspect for the Parkland school shooting said he wants his impending $800,000 inheritance to go to an organization that will support the victims' family and "facilitate healing" in the community, his lawyer said Wednesday. These modest amounts would hardly put a dent in his costly legal defense, though an annuity Cruz inherited may well be worth much more and has caught the court's attention. Cruz's prison commissary account contains $669, his defense told the court.

But Assistant State Attorney Shari Tate said prosecutors won't let that happen and that the case should go to a jury.

A teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida was arrested for allegedly leaving a loaded gun in a public men's room.

For the sake of the families involved, Finkelstein said, he would prefer his client take a plea and serve 34 consecutive life sentences - one for each of the counts on which he's been indicted. Finkelstein repeated that Cruz will plead guilty if the death penalty is waived.
