The three short videos were found on the cellphone of suspect Nikolas Cruz after the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 people and injured 17 others.

Chilling videos of Nikolas Cruz telling the world he was "the next school shooter" have been released as part of the case against the teenager accused of carrying out the Florida massacre. "When you see me on the news you'll all know who I am", he says with a creepy laugh. Cruz, 19, is charged with carrying out one of the deadliest school shootings in US history. "My goal is at least 20 people with an AR-15", Cruz says to the camera.

At least one of the videos is believed to have been shot on February 14, the day of the shooting.

Though Cruz's defense attorneys have offered a guilty plea in exchange for a life sentence, Broward County prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty.

The former student is charged with 17 counts of murder and attempted murder.

The gun seen in the video is apparently the rifle authorities say Cruz legally purchased from a licensed gun dealer past year and ultimately used as the murder weapon.

"I am gonna go take Uber within the afternoon earlier than 2:40 (pm)", he boasts.

The video was reportedly discovered on Cruz's cellphone and was being used as evidence in his trial, CNN reported.

"It wasn't a spur of the moment decision", the former head of the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, Peggy Brill, told The Miami Herald. "It wasn't a spur of the moment decision to shoot".

Rodger made a video while sitting in his auto in which he bragged about what he would do, and that he would show no mercy - accompanied by the laugh. A total of 17 students and teachers died, and 17... He also professed his love for a girl he mentioned only by first name, and said he hoped to see her in the "afterlife".

Cruz's suicidal thoughts are expressed as he discusses how his life is nothing and meaningless, Lankford said. He was able to elude BSO deputies and police officers who responded to the scene, ditching his weapon inside a stairwell before slipping off campus and walking to a nearby Walmart and McDonalds. "The day of my massacre shall begin". The videos, they say, are "triggering" and give Cruz the attention he craved.

"All the child at school will run in concern and hide".
