The suspect in one of the deadliest school shootings in modern American history took an Uber ride to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where he pulled out a semiautomatic AR-15 rifle and began firing at students in hallways and classrooms, the authorities said Thursday.

The suspect, Nikolas Cruz, 19, eventually discarded the rifle, a vest and ammunition in a stairwell, blended in with fleeing students and got away, the authorities said.
