The office of Broward County State Attorney Michael Satz filed the formal notice of its intentions Tuesday.
Cruz has admitted to the shooting, and has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.
Cruz has another formal arraignment scheduled for Wednesday, during which he is expected to be arraigned on an additional 17 counts of first-degree murder.
The Sun Sentinel reports that Cruz's attorneys had previously taken the position that the suspect committed mass shooting and would "plead guilty if prosecutors would agree to drop the death penalty as a possible punishment".
The action by prosecutors on Tuesday does not necessarily mean a plea deal will not be reached. While they continue to acknowledge that he carried out the rampage, they cannot plead guilty while Cruz could be sentenced to death, Finkelstein said Tuesday.
