(FOX NEWS) — A freshman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School received a chilling warning when he encountered shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz in the hallway as he was reloading his AR-15 rifle that fateful Valentine’s Day.

The student told investigators that Cruz said “you better get out of here,” according to interview transcripts released on Friday.

The account is part of the case against Cruz, who is charged with 17 counts of first-degree murder and 17 counts of attempted murder in the Parkland, Fla., shooting rampage.
