It was the nation’s deadliest school shooting since 26 people died when a gunman attacked an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, more than five years ago.

CNN, citing law enforcement sources, said the gunman tried to blend in with students who were fleeing the school but was spotted and taken into custody without a fight about an hour after the shooting in a neighbourhood about two kilometres away. 

He had multiple magazines of ammunition, authorities said.
