The FBI and Broward County Sheriff's Office are waiting for a search warrant to be issued in connection yesterday's mass shooting at a Parkland high school. The warrant will allow law enforcement officers to search the home of 19-Year-Old Nikolas Cruz. Cruz lived with a family on Loxahatchee Road near Parkland.

According to the attorney representing that family, Cruz lived there for the last three months. He moved there in November after his mother and he had no where else to live.

The family says they helped out the 19-year-old Cruz because he knew another student at Stoneman Douglas H.S. who was a mutual friend.

Detectives tell CBS12 that members of the family are not suspects and not persons of interest.

Once the warrant is signed, FBI agents will search the home, which is expected to happen sometime before Thursday afternoon.
