THE brother of Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz has been committed to a psychiatric facility, as the family who took the murderer in says ‘we had this monster living under our roof and didn’t know’.

THE younger brother of deranged school shooter Nikolas Cruz was committed to a mental health facility, according to reports.

The New York Post reports, authorities removed someone Friday from the home of Roxanne Deschamps, a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers who took them in after their adoptive mother died of pneumonia in November, The Palm Beach Post reported.

A friend of Deschamps confirmed Zachary Cruz, who turns 18 next week, was the person removed from the home.

The younger Cruz brother was involuntarily committed under Florida’s Baker Act, under which he can be held involuntarily for up to 12 hours for an involuntary psychiatric exam.

It’s unclear if he’s been released.

“He bought a gun and wanted to bring it into my house,” she said in comments that have since been wiped from her Facebook page, the paper reported.

Chad Bennett, a family friend, said Deschamps gave Cruz an ultimatum and Cruz “chose the gun and he left.”
