Accused Parkland shooter back in court, faces additional charges

The accused Parkland school shooter will be back in court on Wednesday facing additional charges.

Police say that Nikolas Cruz last month assaulted a law enforcement officer and took his stun gun. Jail records show Cruz now is charged with aggravated assault on an officer, battery on an officer and use of an "electric or chemical weapon against an officer."

Cruz is currently being held without bond for the 2018 Valentine's Day mass shooting. In February, Cruz was charged for that shooting, which left 14 students and three faculty members dead. He's pleaded not guilty in the shooting but his lawyers say he would plead guilty in exchange for a life prison sentence.
