Newly Released Footage Shows What Deputy Did During Parkland Shooting

The video, obtained by TMZ. reportedly shows school resource officer Scot Peterson, a now-former deputy with the Broward County Sheriff's Office, outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14 as a gunman opened fire inside. Another angle shows the golf cart moving down a corridor before the shot switches again.

After his resignation, Peterson insisted that he followed his police training, and took a "tactical position" outside the building, as he believed Cruz was still somewhere outside.

During most of the six minutes of shooting, the camera's view of Peterson is blocked by a light pole but parts of him occasionally appear.

In a statement via his attorney after the shooting, Peterson had said he wasn't sure where the shots were coming from. There are no words'.

President Trump has previously criticized Peterson's actions, saying the officer lacked courage.

Russian Federation could announce measures against Britain 'any minute'
Mirzayanov revealed details of Russia's chemical weapons in the 1990s because he said he was afraid of their impact. It had said it would take it into consideration if May blamed Russian Federation for the poisoning attack.


The 54-year-old deputy retired rather than accept a suspension.

Peterson has denied wrongdoing.

That contradicts a statement issued February 26 by his lawyer saying Peterson, who was assigned to the school, "believed that those gunshots were originating from outside any of the buildings on the school campus".

The video was released as a result of a lawsuit from the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the Miami Herald and CNN against the Broward Sheriff's Office and the School Board of Broward County so the public can "be given the first-hand opportunity to review and evaluate the video and the actions of its government officials". "Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away", a panicked Peterson shouted as people screamed in the background, according to radio recordings released last week.

The deputy failed to confront the gunman during the six-minute rampage, the video's time stamps show, confirming the account of other law-enforcement officers who raised questions about the response by the Sheriff's Office nearly immediately after the shooting.

Peterson was armed but stayed outside the building, authorities said. The police force said the footage justifies action against Deputy Scot Peterson.

Nobody headed inside until 11 minutes after the first shots rang out, by which time shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz had ditched his weapon and fled while critically injured victims had been bleeding out. A state panel approved by lawmakers is also going to review the law enforcement response to the shooting and prior contacts that officials had with the suspected gunman, who had repeatedly come to the attention of police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation before the massacre. On Tuesday, the state attorney in Broward County, Fla., announced it intends to seek the death penalty.

The BSO last week released a detailed timeline of events based on 911 calls and dispatch communications that were made during the shooting.
