Nikolas Cruz jumped out of an Uber car and walked toward building 12 of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, carrying a black duffel bag and a black backpack. A man inside the school spotted Cruz and knew he was a former student, a troubled kid. The man, whose name was blacked out from a sheriff's affidavit, told detectives Cruz was moving "purposefully".Cruz slipped into the building, entered a stairwell and extracted a rifle from his bag, authorities said. He shot into four rooms on the first floor – going back to spray bullets into two of the rooms a second time – then went upstairs and shot a single victim on the second floor. From the time Cruz entered the building until the time he left, only six minutes passed.Among at least 1,000 people attending a candlelight vigil near the school Thursday night, some openly sobbed as the victims' names were read aloud.Of these, one involved a suicide, two involved active shooters who killed students, two involved people killed in arguments and three involved people who were shot but survived.
