The driver told WFOR-TV that she doesn't speak English fluently, so she didn't speak much with Cruz. Still, she said, he seemed like "just a normal person," and he gave her no indication of the carnage authorities said he planned.
The Uber driver said she thought of Cruz later, after she started seeing news reports of the attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High.
"I thought, 'Oh, I just left someone over there," she told WFOR-TV.
Court records obtained by the news station showed that deputies with the Broward Sheriff's Office searched the Uber driver's car for "bullets, guns, writings by Cruz or anything else that might be connected to the shooting." The driver told WFOR-TV that deputies did not find anything significant.
Cruz was arrested on Valentine’s Day after police said he fired several shots from an AR-15 rifle at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, killing 14 students and three teachers.
He is facing 17 counts of premeditated murder.
