On Wednesday, the 19-year-old returned to the high school with an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and slaughtered 17 students and teachers.

Cruz can be seen in the video flailing his arms as other students charge him and cause him to slip.

Cruz was suspended for two days following the incident. 

Cruz was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last February after officials at the high school claimed they documented at least five separate violent incidents involving the Florida native. 

Cruz reportedly confessed to the Valentine's Day shooting shortly after being brought before a Broward County judge via video conference on Thursday.

At 2.06pm, Valentine's Day, Cruz took an Uber to the school he was expelled from, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland.   

He was armed with an AR-15 rifle, and was wearing a vest that was holding additional ammunition.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said the suspect arrived at the high school at 2.19pm Wednesday, entering the east stairwell with a rifle inside a black, soft case.

He explained: 'The suspect exited the stairwell and pulled the rifle out of the case at 2.21pm local time. He then readied his rifle and began shooting into rooms 1215, 1216, 1214 ... he then went back into 1216, 1215 and then to 1213.

'The suspect then took the west stairwell to the second floor and shot one victim in room 1234 on the second floor. The suspect then took the east stairwell to the third floor... he then dropped his rifle and backpack containing extra ammunition and ran down the stairs... exiting building 12 and ran toward the tennis courts.'

Police say he exited building 12 at 2.28pm.  Both the vest and the rifle were later recovered by police.

'The suspect then turned west and tried to mix in with students who were trying to run away fearing for their lives,' Sheriff Israel said Thursday.

'The suspect then arrived at a Walmart store and bought a drink at the Subway and left the Walmart on foot.'

According to the police timeline, he arrived at Walmart at 2.50pm.

'The suspect then arrived at a McDonald's and sat down for a short period of time around 3.01pm and he left on foot.'

'At 3.41pm, 40 minutes after leaving McDonald's, the suspect was detained at 4700 Wyndham Lakes Drive in Coral Springs, by an officer with the Coconut Creek Police Department,' Sheriff Israel concluded.

Coconut Creek police officer Michael Leonard spotted Cruz walking down a nearby residential street after responding from his neighboring precinct.

'He looked like a typical high school student and for a quick moment, I thought could this be the person?' Leonard said. 'Is this who I need to stop?'

Leonard said he pulled over and confronted the suspected 19-year-old mass murderer.   

'He complied with my commands and was taken into custody without any issues,' the officer said.

After he was arrested, he was first taken to an area hospital before being taken to police headquarters.

He confessed to the shooting spree that left 17 dead.
