The FBI has admitted it received a tip from someone regarding Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz on January 5, 2018, but never followed up on it.

BuzzFeed News dropped a bombshell today with a report that the FBI received a warning last fall from a YouTube vlogger and bail bondsman about a comment from a Nikolas Cruz. He supposedly said, “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.”
