Parkland Shooting Surveillance Video Shows Deputy Remained Outside

Parkland Shooting Surveillance Video Shows Deputy Remained Outside

By order of a judge, the Broward County Sheriff's office has released surveillance video of the horrific Parkland school shooting in February.

Sheriff Scott Israel blasted Peterson eight days after the shooting, saying the deputy should have entered the building immediately, "addressed the killer, killed the killer".

Cruz is accused of carrying out the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that also wounded 17 people in a case that has reignited a national debate about gun control and school safety.

In a statement, the Broward Sheriff's Office said it welcomed a Florida judge's decision to release the footage but said it was prohibited from discussing any details until the investigation had concluded.

The video appears to show Peterson standing outside the building at the same time the shooting was taking place. It's his actions during those moments that left his former boss, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel publicly fuming.

While outside, Peterson provided frequent updates on police radio, according to a timeline provided by the sheriff's office, including directing other officers to the building on the large campus and asking for nearby streets to be shut down.

The video shows Peterson and a staff member in a golf cart rushing toward the building. During that time, Peterson took a position where he could see the western entry of the building.

A final shot, which lasts roughly 26 minutes, shows what police say is Mr Peterson outside of the building - at least for a portion of the clip - while pixelated students file past him. On Wednesday, students across the United States participated in a 17-minute school walkout, that served both to protest what they view as a lack of political action, as well as to memorialize the victims of the attack. In a statement issued through his lawyer shortly after his retirement, he said he thought the shots were being fired from outside the school.

President Donald Trump called Peterson a coward, but Peterson, through his attorney, said he wasn't sure where the gunfire was coming from and that he was "no coward".

Peterson also told other law enforcement officers who raced to the school to stay outside.

Some 911 calls and police radio traffic audiotapes have gradually been made public.
