Authorities on Thursday released video surveillance footage showing the outside of the Parkland high school where a teenage gunman opened fire, killing 17 people and wounding 15 in Florida’s deadliest campus shooting. Citing “strong public interest,” a Broward judge last week ordered public release of the four video clips from the surveillance system at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High. The clips do not show the carnage inside Building 12, but depict police response on campus outside. Exactly how the Broward Sheriff’s Office responded in the initial moments of the massacre has been the focus of extensive national criticism. When gunfire broke out on the afternoon of Feb. 14, school resource deputy Scot Peterson arrived within minutes, but took up a position outside and never entered the building to engage shooter Nikolas Cruz. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel publicly condemned Peterson, who resigned but has insisted he followed his training. The longtime campus cop, through his lawyer, said he believed the gunfire was coming from outside Building 12; police radio dispatches, however, suggest Peterson knew gunfire was happening inside and he even ordered fellow cops to stay away.
