Records released by prosecutors reveal that Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz trespassed on school grounds about six months before the massacre that left 17 dead on Valentine’s Day 2018.

A Parkland computer science teacher said she saw Cruz on the first day of school in August 2017, carrying a backpack and hanging with other students as if he were one of them. Cruz was kicked out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School the previous year. Sandra Rennie’s interview was released by prosecutors Friday.

Rennie said Cruz told her he was a student again and she welcomed him back, but immediately asked an administrator whether he was in her classes.

She said the administrator left to escort him off school grounds.

Rennie had previously taught Cruz.

She said he once became angry because the school computer prevented him from researching different types of hunting guns.
