FBI Was Notified Last Year of Threatening YouTube Comment by 'Nikolas Cruz'

YouTube vlogger previously warned FBI about school shooting treat made by a Nikolas Cruz

"You know, people leave pretty heinous comments on a pretty regular basis on this channel and I really didn't think anything of it, but what I did think was, you know, this comment said, 'I am going to be a professional school shooter, ' and I knew that I couldn't just ignore that", Bennight said in his video posted Wednesday.

People are brought out of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after a shooting at the school that reportedly killed and injured multiple people on February 14, 2018 in Parkland, Florida.

MS bail bondsman Ben Bennight had reported the alarming comment left on one of his videos to both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and YouTube, according to BuzzFeed News.

"I'm going to be a professional school shooter", a commenter wrote a year ago on YouTube under the name "Nikolas Cruz".

But they were back in touch on Wednesday following the mass shooting. The comment was flagged and removed from YouTube. Bennight told the agents he didn't know anything about the user, he told CNN.

The FBI received a tip months before Wednesday's Florida high school shooting that alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz wrote about being "a professional school shooter" in a YouTube comment. "The FBI conducted database reviews and other checks, but was unable to further identify the person who posted the comment". Bennight received a call from a Mississippi FBI field office and then received another call from an FBI agent in Miami.

"I saw the story kind of go across my newsfeed, but I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it", he recalled Thursday in a phone interview with CNN.

Later in the day, agents from the MS field office visited Bennight and questioned him about Cruz.

"I think in today's online world, it is very hard to narrow down who does what without more information", Bennight told CNN's Jake Tapper later Thursday, "and unfortunately, I wasn't able to provide them with much".

He told BuzzFeed News: "They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person".
