FBI Alerted To YouTube 'shooter' Post Last Year

Nikolas Cruz, who has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder, reportedly left a comment on a YouTube video a year ago stating: "I'm going to be a professional school shooter".

Ben Bennight, a 36-year-old YouTube video blogger from MS, said in September that he noticed an alarming comment posted on his video.

"No other information was included with that comment which would indicate a time, location, or the true identity of the person who made the comment", Robert Lasky, special agent in charge of the FBI Miami Division, said at a news conference, according to ABC News.

YouTuber Bennight told BuzzFeed News that the comment about becoming a professional school shooter alarmed him when he came across it five months ago, and he immediately notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation and YouTube, which removed the comment. Nikolas Cruz allegedly commented on Bennight's YouTube video saying, "I'm going to be a professional school shooter".

Bennight told Pegues he spoke with the FBI Wednesday night again for about 20 minutes.

Florida law enforcement announced Thursday they've started looking into the suspected school shooter's social media accounts and websites. The comment on YouTube has since been pulled down.
