    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office says it received a call from someone in Massachusetts warning about Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz.

    According to call details obtained by Boston 25 News, the tipster called on Nov. 30, 2017. The caller advised that Nikolas Cruz was collecting guns and knives and wanted to join the Army. The tipster said they were “concerned he will kill himself one day and believes he could be a school shooter in the making.”

    The caller also said that Cruz was not living at a Parkland, FL address and was living in Lake Worth, FL and believed the weapons were being kept at a friend’s house at an unknown location. 

    The deputy contacted the Mass. tipster and referred them to the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office. No report was filed.

    The call log lists this call as “incident under Internal Affairs review/ investigation."
