The brother of the Florida school shooter has been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility, according to a report.
Nikolas Cruz’s younger brother, who turns 18 next week, was involuntarily removed from his home on Friday under what is commonly known as the Baker Act, according to the Palm Beach Post.
While an adult may be held and examined for up to 72 hours, the limit for minors is 12 hours.
Both Nikolas Cruz and his brother were adopted by a loving older couple. But Roger Cruz passed away years ago, while their mother Lynda Cruz died on Nov. 1 from pneumonia.
