How many times were BSO deputies called about Nikolas Cruz?

The finger pointing continues as many things regarding the Broward Sheriff's Office's response to the Parkland school shooting are still in question, including the number of times deputies were called regarding the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, or his brother.

CNN first reported that public records show there were 45 calls made to the Sheriff's Office, instead of 23 as the sheriff has said.

At least one of those 911 calls came from a neighbor after her son showed her disturbing Instagram posts.

The various calls range from domestic disturbances to police service calls. Most didn't result in a written report.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said two of the calls are under investigation and we now have details about why those 911 calls were made.

On Feb. 5, 2016, an anonymous caller told a dispatcher that Cruz posted on Instagram that he planned to shoot up a school.

A deputy responded, and found that Cruz possessed knives and a BB gun.

The deputy forwarded the information to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school resource officer.

Then on Nov. 30, 2017, someone from Massachusetts called 911 and said Cruz was a school shooter in the making.

BSO told the caller to contact the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office because that was the county Cruz was currently living in.

The school resource officer was mentioned another time when someone called 911 on Sept. 28, 2016.

That's when it's noted that the school resource deputy assisted when Cruz threatened suicide.

But it was found that Cruz did not meet the criteria to be hospitalized under Florida's Baker Act.

The Broward Sheriff's Office did not respond to questions about the discrepancy between the 45 and 23 calls.
