PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities have identified the suspect in the shooting that claimed 17 lives at a Florida high school as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office tweeted a correction with that spelling on the identity of the suspect.
The office of Sheriff Scott Israel, as well as a federal official briefed on the investigation, had spelled the first name of the suspect erroneously in their previous accounts.
Israel says Cruz was arrested after the attack on a Parkland, Florida, high school and checked out at a hospital before being taken to a secure location in an unspecified public building
Sheriff Israel, "The shooter was not a current student."
