Surveillance video shows deputy standing outside Parkland school during massacre

Judge orders release of security video from Florida school shooting

Judge orders release of security video from Florida school shooting

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida judge on Wednesday entered a not-guilty plea for Nikolas Cruz, who is charged with shooting to death 17 students and staff last month in a massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

The video raises further questions about the actions of the officer, Scot Peterson, who was a Broward sheriff's deputy assigned as the lone armed officer protecting Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Peterson, through his lawyer in the days after the shooting, said the reason he did not enter the building was because he initially thought the shots were coming from outside. He pulls his weapon and takes up a position outside the building. Video of what happened inside the school has not been released.

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

Peterson's attorney has argued that his client responded appropriately and did nothing wrong. But neither go inside, and subsequent footage shows Peterson riding in a golf cart, still outside the building. The video has no sound.

"Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away at this point", Peterson said, according to call logs at 2:28pm, seven minutes after the first shots were fired. Later, he said, "We also heard it's by - inside the 1200 building".

In a statement, released alongside the video, Israel said: "The video speaks for itself". It's his actions during those moments that left his former boss, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel publicly fuming.

A newly-released surveillance video shows a Florida police officer outside a high school while a gunman was firing on students inside. Its release comes as the sheriff's office has faced intense scrutiny for its response to the February 14 shooting as well as how its deputies acted before and after the massacre.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, at the request of Gov. Rick Scott, has opened an investigation into the law enforcement response to the shooting. Peterson takes cover outside the corner of an adjacent building, and the footage appears to show a few students rushing outside. Classmates and others who knew him also described signs of mental illness, with some telling media outlets they outright predicted he might one day be a school shooter.

From the video, it does not appear Peterson did any of those things.

Police and school officials had resisted the release, saying it was evidence in an active investigation.
