Parkland prosecutors ask for an investigation after a juror says she was threatened by ‘a fellow juror’ during deliberations

(CNN) — Prosecutors in the Nikolas Cruz Parkland shooting case are calling for law enforcement to interview a juror who said they felt threatened by another juror during deliberations, according to a court filing obtained by CNN.

“Juror X spoke to a support staff member and informed the support staff member that during deliberations she received what she perceived to be a threat from a fellow juror while in the jury room,” the filing says. “The State did not call Juror X back and instead, filed a Notice to the Court.”

The motion is the latest indication of behind-the-scenes tension among the jury. Thursday, a juror wrote a letter to the judge calling the deliberations “tense” and denying an accusation she heard that she had made up her mind to support a life sentence before the trial began. And in an interview the jury foreman described disagreement among the jury, saying only three jurors opposed the death penalty in this case.
