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.
19-year old gunman Nikolas Cruz has reportedly instructed his attorney to distribute his $800,000 inheritance when he receives the funds on his 22nd birthday, saying he “does not want those funds.”
“He would like that money donated to an organization that the victims’ family believes would be able to facilitate healing in our community or an opportunity to educate our community about the issues that have ripened over the last four or five months,” said lawyer Melissa McNeill.
