Prosecutors will seek the death penalty against suspect in Parkland school massacre

Florida prosecutors announced on Tuesday they will seek the death penalty for the accused Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz.

A notice filed by state prosecutors cited multiple reasons under Florida law for the use of the death penalty, including that Mr Cruz, "knowingly created a great risk of death" to many people, that the shooting was, "especially heinous, atrocious or cruel", and it was committed in a "cold, calculated and premeditated manner".

Cruz has another formal arraignment scheduled for Wednesday, during which he is expected to be arraigned on an additional 17 counts of first-degree murder.

Cruz's attorneys withdrew his not guilty plea on Friday, and Cruz now "stands mute" to the charges.

According to the document, a written plea of not guilty was filed before formal charges were brought against him.

But the State Attorney's Office wouldn't take capital punishment off the table, listing seven "aggravating factors" that a jury can use to justify ordering Cruz's execution for the February 14 shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
