Broward County police were called to Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz's house at least 36 times between 2010 and November 2016, Buzzfeed News reports. In September 2016, authorities responding to a 911 call from his mother, Lynda Cruz, reported they "saw no signs of mental illness or criminal activity and left without incident."

Why it matters: The police reports uncovered by Buzzfeed shed further light on the narrative that Cruz suffered from mental health issues, including ADHD and OCD, and that consistent warning signs over his disturbing behavior may have been missed.
