Jury Expected To Hear Case Against Parkland Shooter Beginning Tuesday

Prosecutors are expected to begin presenting a grand jury with evidence against the accused Parkland high school shooter.

The jury is expected to begin considering formal charges against 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz on Tuesday. He's been jailed since the Feb. 14th school tragedy at his former school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where he opened fire and killed 17 individuals. 

Cruz confessed to investigators when he was captured. Multiple witnesses have also identified him as the shooter.

The Broward State Attorney's Office typically presents evidence to grand jurors in all first-degree murder cases and all police shootings. 

The jury will hear testimony from witnesses and then vote on an indictment, which could take more than one day.
