Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz told a detective that a demon in his head — "the evil side" — told him to burn, kill and destroy, and that he thought about going to a park to kill people about a week before 17 people were gunned down at the school, according to a recently released transcript of his interrogation.

The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments Aug. 28 in a dispute about whether a Broward County sheriff’s deputy could use the state’s “stand your ground” self-defense law after being charged with manslaughter in an on-duty shooting. 

Broward County commissioners can’t regulate guns in their county, but might create a voluntary program to control sales, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.  A 2011 state law bans local governments from regulating guns. But under Broward’s proposed program, vendors who sell to both law enforcement agencies and the public would be asked to follow voluntary safeguards, including the running of background checks, the Sun Sentinel reports.
