A jail guard testified Wednesday that Florida mass shooter Nikolas Cruz attacked him then grabbed his Taser nine months after the RKland high school massacre that left 17 people dead.

The Nov. 13, 2018, the confrontation was captured on surveillance footage that was shown to jurors during Cruz’s penalty trial in Broward County Circuit Court in Fort Lauderdale.

The attack occurred while Cruz was being held in isolation after he slaughtered 14 students and three staffers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018.

Broward County sheriff’s Sgt. Raymond Beltran was seated at a desk when he told Cruz, who was wearing his orange jail uniform and a pair of shower slippers, to walk more carefully.

The two wrestled over the weapon, which discharged but did not hit either of them. Beltran wrestled it back from Cruz then used it to bash him in the head, the guard testified. Cruz later pleaded guilty to the assault.

Prosecutors are using the conviction as an aggravating circumstance in arguing that Cruz should be executed. Cruz, 23, pleaded guilty in October to 17 counts of first-degree murder.

The jury will decide whether Cruz will spend the rest of his life in prison or be executed.
