Nikolas Cruz paid $560 for the AR-15 he allegedly used to kill seventeen people in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, according to a transcript of a video recording introduced at his trial.
Cruz's attorneys wanted to keep the full transcript confidential, but a judge ordered its release after news organisations, including The New York Times, sued under Florida's public records law.
Nikolas Cruz, the suspected gunman behind the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., shouted "kill me" as he sat alone in an interrogation room hours after he was taken into custody.
Cruz, who described the voice as male and about his age, said it began after his father died about 15 years ago, but got worst when his mother died of pneumonia in November.
Cruz also described a so-called demon in his head that urges him to "Burn".
When the officer briefly left the room to look for water anyway, Cruz said to himself: "Kill me, just kill me".
He said he's had to fight the voice from taking over, and that the only person he ever told about it was his brother.
"The voice is in here", he said, apparently pointing to his head. "Because I have no one", he said.

This Brave Caller Explains Why Organ Donor Opt-Out Is So Important
Currently, less than half of families give consent for their loved one's organs to be donated if they are unaware of their wishes. They need lifetime support and care to ensure transplanted organs are not rejected and life with their new organ is lived well.
Curcio probed Cruz about why he didn't seek help. Twice when Curcio left the room, Cruz, 19, cursed at himself and said that he wanted to die, he deserved to die. "It's a voice. The voice is in here and then it's me, it's just regular me, just trying to be a good person".
"Burn, kill, destroy what?" the detective asked. Cruz told Curcio he had been scared to tell others about the voice.
Cruz said that a couple of weeks before the attack, he had planned to go to a park and shoot people there but then decided he "didn't want to do it".
Officials previously said students would no longer have to use see-through backpacks when they returned to the Parkland school. He said he bought the rifle because it was "cool looking". Curcio asked. No, Cruz replied, saying the bullets embedded in the concrete.
"You don't have anything and you're not acting like yourself", said the brother. "When you see me on the news, you'll all know who I am", he said. Like, come on. Why did you do this?
Cruz reportedly responded, "I don't like the demon", and purportedly ended the interrogation by requesting an attorney.
It was revealed in May that Broward officials were confirming that Cruz had been assigned to the PROMISE program in middle school after both Runcie and the Broward Sheriff's Office said he did not attend the program "while in high school".
