Parkland shooter spared death penalty and gets life in prison


A gunman who killed seventeen people at a high school in Parkland, Florida in 2018 has been spared the death penalty.

A jury recommended that Nikolas Cruz should instead spend the rest of his life in prison for the attack, which is the deadliest mass shooting ever to reach jury trial in the United States.

One mother whose daughter died in the attack said she was ‘beyond disappointed’ with the decision.
