Parkland Shooter Appears in Court

FLORIDA - As some in our community work to keep the conversation going regarding guns, the Parkland school shooter is making his way through the court system.

Nikolas Cruz is scheduled to appear in court this afternoon.

Cruz faces 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder for the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

His lawyers say he's willing to plead guilty if prosecutors drop the death penalty.
