Surveillance video taken outside of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the mass shooting in Parkland is now public. A portion of the video released yesterday shows school resource officer Scot Peterson standing outside of the school with his gun drawn. The video confirms what we had already been told…he never goes inside to confront the shooter. The video also shows Peterson alerting a school employee about the gunfire and radioing in information to law enforcement.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Security video shows a Florida sheriff's deputy go toward the high school building while a gunman massacred 17 students and staff members, but he stayed outside with his handgun drawn.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office released the video Thursday showing Deputy Scot Peterson's actions during the Feb. 14 shooting. It shows him and a staff member rushing toward the building in a cart. He pulls his weapon and takes up a position outside the building. During much of the shooting, the camera's view of Peterson is blocked by a light pole but parts of him occasionally appear.
