The images have revealed that Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz broke into the interrogation room when he confessed his crimes to his brother.
Cruz, 19, was interviewed by the police hours after the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
For almost 12 hours in the interrogation room of the Broward Sheriff, Cruz confessed to the mass shooting, and told the officers he wanted to die, at one point pointed his fingers like a gun to his head, and repeatedly asked about his brother Zachary, 18 years old.
The images show Zachary sitting in front of his brother, who is handcuffed and wearing a hospital gown, asking him to explain why he had dedicated himself to the killing.

Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz has been caught in the video of the interrogation room crying in the arms of his brother Zachary after confessing to the murder of 17 people
"People think you're a monster now," Zachary told him.
& # 39; A monster? & # 39; Cruz asked.
"This is not what you are," Zachary continued. I like it, why?
& # 39; Why did you do this? & # 39;
Then he told Cruz not to laugh at him. The shooter answered & # 39; I'm sorry friend & # 39; but the wording in the video means that it is not clear if he is apologizing for laughing or for the mass shooting.
Zachary demanded to know: "What do you think Mom would think now if it were …? & # 39;
His mother Lynda, who adopted them as newborns of the same biological mother, died of pneumonia three months before the shooting.
"I would cry", the two brothers echoed.

"People think you're a monster now," Zachary told his older brother in a moment.
Despite the horrendous crimes his brother confessed, Zachary wanted to let his brother know that he was still there to help him.
When Cruz started crying, Zachary went and hugged him, telling him & # 39; I'm your brother, I love you & # 39;
Despite the horrendous crimes his brother confessed, Zachary wanted to let his brother know that he was still there for him.
"I know what you did today," he said. "Other people look at me like I'm crazy."
"But I do not care what others think, I'm your brother, I love you."
At that moment, Cruz began to cry aloud and then Zachary asked the present detective if he could hug his brother.
The teenager wrapped his arms around Cruz who buried his head in his shoulder and began to sob uncontrollably.
"You really were wrong this time … no one can get you out of this, dog," Zachary told him as he cried.
"I'm sorry," said Cruz. & # 39; I love you. & # 39;
The brothers have had a complicated relationship and as they grew up, Cruz said he was intimidated by his younger brother, something that Zachary played during his 15-minute conversation.
He acknowledged that it made it seem like I did not care when you were little & # 39; and I made it look like I hate you, but he explained that he had been trying to survive.
"I did not want to look like a … I did not want to look weak," he said, apologizing for being a "dumb imbecile."
& # 39; I love you with all my heart. I'm telling you right now, I love you.
A disturbing video of the shooter of the school of Florida The police interrogation of Nikolas Cross was unveiled on Wednesday, showing him to point him with a fake gun while simulating suicide
It also reminded him of a promise he made after the death of his adoptive mother.
"I told you when we were walking down the hall that it's just you, me and I had your back," Zachary said. "You probably felt you did not have anyone but me, I care about you. I'll literally get my heart out for you."
The brothers remembered a little about their childhood, but the 18-year-old was eager to press Cruz on his repeated suicide threats.
The gunslinger has repeatedly told investigators that he wants to die.
And the interrogation video, since they left him alone for a moment, showed Cruz murmur: "Kill me, just fuck me."
Zachary said he cried at the thought of his brother committing suicide.
Cruz replied: "I'm a failure, friend."
"You're not right in the head," said his brother.
"Just do not, do not hurt yourself," he urged as the detectives told them they had run out of time.
& # 39; Please, do not kill yourself. Try to find God Be strong for me & # 39;
I'll do it for you, Cruz replied.
The video was released by prosecutors on Wednesday.
It was taken minutes after Cruz's confession to Broward Sheriff's detective John Curcio.

Much of their conversation focused on what the 19-year-old insisted was a voice he had heard for years and that said things like "burn, kill, destroy."
The almost 12 hours of video of the interview have been edited to eliminate Cruz's direct confession.
He claims that a demonic voice in his head urged him to do violence.
The video seemed to show Cruz agitated and tense trying to control his emotions.
At a certain moment, when Cruz is left alone in the room, the video shows him doing a pistol movement with his hand, raising him from the head and pretending to press the trigger. Later, he is seen hitting his face hard with both hands and occasionally scratching his right arm with a small object that he picked up from the floor.
Much of the conversation between Cruz and the detective focused on what the 19-year-old insisted was a voice he had heard for years and that said things like "burn, kill, destroy."
At one point, when Cruz is left alone in the room, he was captured in front of the camera repeatedly making a handgun movement and pretending to shoot himself in the head and chest.
The video and the 200-page transcript of Cruz's statement after the shooting were released after a judge ruled last month that portions other than confessions should be made public.
Cruz made the 12-hour statement to Curcio shortly after the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School
The details of the shots are blackened, but the transcription is very varied, it is the death of Cruz's parents, his inclination to kill animals, his ex-girlfriend, his brother, firearms, suicide attempts and, especially, the voice.
The detective asked if the alleged voice had given specific instructions related to the massacre, including the fact that Cruz took an Uber to high school.
Curcio asked: "The voice did not tell you to take Uber, right?"
Cruz replied: "Yes, he did."
The teenager continued saying that he had tried to commit suicide twice before the massacre because the voice had told him to do it.
He tried an overdose of ibuprofen after his mother's death in November. He told Curcio that the voice appeared after his father died about 15 years ago, but worsened after his mother died in November.
Cruz described the voice as a man, more or less his age, and that the only person he counted was his brother.
Cruz also admitted taking drugs such as Xanax and marijuana.
According to the transcript, Cruz told the detective that he bought the AR-15 for $ 560 at a gun shop and purchased the ammunition online. He estimated spending around $ 4,000 on weapons. He said he bought the rifle because it was "great."
When he was left alone in the interview room again, Cruz told himself: "I want to die."
The transcript of Cruz's interrogation (seen here in April) shows that he spat "kill me". and cursed while sitting alone in the interrogation room of a sheriff hours after the massacre.

& # 39; In the end, you're just useless s ** t, buddy. You deserve to die because you are losing courage and pretending (unintelligible) to everyone. I want to die. & # 39;
Cruz's lawyers have said he would plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence without parole. Prosecutors seek the death penalty.
The release of the details of the interrogation came when Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri told the Douglas Marjory Stoneman High School Public Safety Commission on Wednesday that Cruz's behavior before the shooting was a "roller coaster."
He said that Cruz's fluctuating behavior over the years made it difficult for school officials to determine how it should be managed.
"It really was a roller coaster with Cruz really from birth," said Gualtieri.
A report released last week by the Broward County school district said it began showing behavioral problems that drove it out of pre-kindergarten. He spent his school years going back and forth between regular campuses and those for children with emotional and behavioral problems.
"He had really bad bad times, but sometimes he had no behavior problems," Gualtieri said.
Gualtieri said there were times in high school and at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in which Cruz's behavior had been bombed, and that he needed an escort to monitor him.
He did not go into details, but it was previously reported that Cruz got into fights, committed acts of vandalism, cursed the teachers and drew a swastika in his backpack. The administrators conducted a threat assessment on him in 2016, approximately five months before he was expelled from the school.
