Florida school gunman: Prosecutor seeks death penalty

Cruz's public defender has argued that he suffers from serious mental illness, noting that he will enter a guilty plea if prosecutors agree to not seek the death penalty.

The shooting has sparked a fierce national debate over gun rights, with numerous student survivors vowing to push for gun control regulations so that the shooting they lived through might be the last.

In court filings Tuesday, prosecutors also said Cruz put people at risk of death and hindered "any government function or enforcement of laws".

United States prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the teenager accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school last month. He said they need to act because the National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit against the new law approved by the Legislature.

The commission will consider proposals that call for raising the age of weapon purchases to 21, banning bump stocks, a ban on types of semi-automatic rifles and extending the waiting period for gun purchases.

Broward Health spokeswoman Jennifer Smith said Tuesday that Anthony Borges' condition has now been upgraded to fair.

The announcement came almost a week after Cruz was indicted by a grand jury on 34 counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder for the February 14 massacre, which killed 17 people and injured the same number.

Borges' family has filed notice that they will sue Florida authorities to seek money to cover the cost of his recovery.

This decision means that South Florida will likely see a lengthy prosecution with emotional testimony about what unfolded inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. If Cruz is convicted, the only other possible sentence he can serve is life in prison without parole. "They're not asking to take away people's guns or their ability to hunt", said John Willis.
