FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Parkland school shooter claimed to hear voices when police arrested him for the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year.

In body-camera footage released Friday afternoon, he rambled about voices and demons as police had him pinned to the ground.

Parkland shooting: Suspended sheriff sues Florida governor

Parkland shooting: Suspended sheriff sues Florida governor The Florida sheriff who was suspended by the governor and accused of failing to prevent the Parkland school shooting filed suit Thursday seeking his job back and alleging Gov. Ron DeSantis improperly ousted him for political reasons. 

Mass shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz said a demon in his head told him to burn, kill and destroy 14 assault on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland . Asked why he didn’t go on a killing But he did talk at length about his difficult family life — which included the death of his father 15 years

A new report found Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz asked school officials for help months before he allegedly gunned down 14 fellow classmates He was told he could transfer to Cross Creek, a school tailored for students with special needs; sue the Broward school district; or stay at Marjory

"Voices. Voices. Where's the voices?" Nikolas Cruz, then 19, said, looking up. "What the (expletive)? Where the (expletive) am I? Holy (expletive)! What happened?"

"Shut up," a Coral Springs police officer responds.

Cruz can later be heard weeping in a high-pitched voice as officers prepare to take him in.

The shooter's reaction at his arrest appeared to be a preview of the statement he later gave to Broward Sheriff's Detective John Curcio - he said he heard voices telling him to kill and destroy.

But the video stood in contrast to another recording Cruz made sometime before his deadly rampage. In his own videos, Cruz calmly and chillingly announced that he will be "the next school shooter."

"It's gonna be a big event," the shooter said in the first video. "You're all going to die," he said.

Cruz is facing 17 counts of first-degree murder, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. If he was trying to set up an insanity defense by talking about demons, it's not likely to work, according to legal experts.

Defense lawyers in the Cruz case have given no indication that they plan to argue insanity.

It's unclear under what circumstances the student died, or what connection, if any, the student had to last year's shooting at the high school.
