Suspected Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz just made an announcement that left everyone in shock.
After allegedly murdering 17 people with a semi-automatic weapon on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, a lawyer for Cruz has said that any inheritance he receives will be donated to the survivors of the deadly attack.

Cruz lost his mother in November of last year and is set to receive $800,000 in inheritance from a trust fund. He would not receive the money until turns 22, a new report revealed.
“Mr. Cruz does not want those funds, whatever money that he is entitled to,” lawyer Melissa McNeill told a Broward County judge Wednesday.
It has not yet been determined whether the inheritance will be paid monthly or yearly, and whether or not Cruz will be entitled to it.
“He would like that money donated to an organization that the victims’ family believes would be able to facilitate healing in our community or an opportunity to educate our community about the issues that have ripened over the last four or five months.”

It the inheritance is dispersed in monthly payment, Cruz may have access up to a “million dollars,” another member of his legal team, Howard Finkelstein said.
“Let it go to those who have been hurt, period,” Finkelstein, pleaded to the judge.
