A man who injured two people when he opened fire at cars on a Georgia highway idolized the Parkland shooting suspect and saw him as a "hero," the Hall County Sheriff said. Rex Whitmire Harbour, 26, fired at least 17 times and struck seven vehicles on Friday before turning his gun on himself. Authorities said they found "hate-filled" writings by Harbour that called Nikolas Cruz a "hero" who gave him "courage and confidence."
