BREAKING: Prosecutors To Seek Death Penalty for Parkland Teen Shooter

Those included the charges that Mr Cruz "knowingly created a great risk of death" to many people, the shooting was "especially heinous, atrocious or cruel", and it was committed in a "cold, calculated and premeditated manner".

Florida prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Nikolas Cruz, the former student accused of murdering 17 people in a shooting spree last month at a Parkland high school, according to a notice filed in court on Tuesday.

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for suspected Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz.

His previous not guilty plea indicated that Cruz denied his alleged role in the shooting, even though the evidence against him is overwhelming and Cruz himself has confessed to authorities, they say.

Tony Montalto's daughter was one of 17 killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in February.

Nineteen-year-old Cruz is scheduled for formal arraignment on Wednesday on a 34 count indictment, including 17 first degree murder charges.

Anthony Borges, 15, was shot five times.

Broward Health spokeswoman Jennifer Smith said Tuesday that Anthony Borges' condition has now been upgraded to fair.

Cruz was arrested shortly after committing the Valentine's Day killings and fleeing the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School campus among terrified students. The boy's intestinal area has been sealed off and he is breathing on his own after being taken off a ventilator, family attorney Alex Arreaza said.

The office of Broward County State Attorney Michael Satz filed the formal notice of its intentions on Tuesday.

His lawyers have let it be known he is prepared to plead guilty if he is guaranteed not to receive a death sentence. The action by prosecutors does not necessarily mean a plea deal will not be reached.

The only other penalty option for Cruz is life in prison without the possibility of parole.
