A Florida gun store where the suspected gunman in Wednesday’ s school shooting bought an AR - 15 is now under investigation .

It was reported by WSVN Thursday that the store was being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The reported investigation came a day after Cruz allegedly opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, roughly a ten minute drive from the gun store.

The sheriff’s office said Cruz used an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and was in possession of multiple magazines when he allegedly committed the massacre, which left at least 17 people dead.

Cruz passed a background check and legally purchased the firearm in February 2017, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.

The AR-15 semi-automatic, which the National Rifle Association has referred to as “America’s most popular rifle,” is often used in mass shootings.

Gunmen in some of the country’s most devastating massacres – Newtown, Connecticut; Las Vegas, Nevada; Sutherland Springs, Texas – have used AR-15s to commit their crimes.
