A student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has revealed that his life was spared by shooter Nikolas Cruz just moments before he opened fire in a massacre that left 17 dead.

Chris McKenna, 15, told the Sun-Sentinel that he was on his way to the bathroom on Wednesday when he stumbled upon Cruz loading up one of his assault rifles.

‘You’d better get out of here. Things are gonna start getting messy,’ McKenna said Cruz told him, despite the fact that the two young men did not know one another.

McKenna then rushed out of the building where he ran into assistant football coach Aaron Feis, who after getting the youngster to safety returned back to the school in what would become his final, fatal trip.

‘I told him I saw a gun,’ said McKenna of his first words to Coach Feis.

‘He said, “Let me go check it out.” Then he drove me to the baseball field, dropped me off, and went back to the school. That’s the last I saw of him.’

It would be the last time that he would see Coach Feis, who was shot dead just minutes later while protecting other students from gunfire.

Feis, 37, was married with a baby daughter.

One of the young students he saved, Kelsey Friend, said he was her ‘hero.’

McKenna said in an interview with Ario Odzer on NBC 6 that he was still trying to process the fact that if he had not gone to the bathroom at that very moment he would likely be dead.

He is also dealing with the fact that three of his friends were killed in the shooting and a fourth is in the hospital.

The fallen were remembered on Thursday night with a vigil.

On Wednesday, Cruz walked into his former school almost one year after he was expelled and opened fire with an AR-15, killing 17 people before he hid among those fleeing the scene and got himself away from the area.

He was captured an hour later after police reviewed surveillance video that was taken at the school.

It was revealed on Wednesday evening that the FBI had been alerted to an alarming comment made by Cruz back in September but never investigated the young man.

That is because the agency was unable to determine the identity of the person who posted that comment on YouTube under the username ‘Nikolas Cruz.’

Students who knew Cruz have also been speaking out, including one young man who wrote: ‘Nick attacked one of my friends once. He brought shotgun shells to school and made many threats against others. He had an insta full of pictures of dead animals that he killed.’

The teen, who wrote that his parents had prohibited him from giving interviews, added: ‘Mental illness needs to be recognized or things like this happen. People i know are f***ing dead.’

Cruz has not be attending Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School at the time of the massacre, having been expelled for disciplinary reasons during the 2016-17 school year.
