The deranged gunman who allegedly mowed down 17 people at his former high school confessed to the mass shooting — and told cops he took an Uber to the scene, it was revealed Thursday.

Nikolas Cruz, who was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder, told officers that he used an AR-15 to perpetrate the massacre at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, according to The Washington Post.
