Parkland Shooting Surveillance Video Shows Deputy Stayed Outside

Then-Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson who was assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the

Security footage of the former deputy at Stoneman Douglas High School pokes holes in his claim that he heard shots coming from outside on that fateful February 14 day.

Security video shows a Florida sheriff's deputy going toward the high school building while a gunman massacred 17 students and staff members, but he then backed away and stayed outside with his handgun drawn.

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.

After speaking into his radio, Mr Peterson can be seen making his way to the building where students were being murdered in a golf cart.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office and School Board had resisted the video release, saying it was exempt from disclosure in part because it was evidence in an active investigation. It's his actions during those moments that left his former boss, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel publicly fuming.

"After being suspended without pay, Peterson chose to resign and immediately retired rather than face possible termination".

In the newly released clip, Peterson can be seen outside the school as the shots began, he and another man knock on a door before turning and walking in the other direction. They get into a golf cart to head to Building 12.

According to the Mash Telegram channel, the total cargo is worth the hefty sum of 21.6 billion rubles (US$380 million). Yakutsk (the flight's city of origin) is the capital of Russia's main diamond producing region, Yakutia .

The release of the footage comes one day after National Walkout Day, where survivors of the shooting and students nationwide walked out of their classrooms to send a message something needs to change when it comes to school safety and gun laws.

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.

But Peterson's own radio transmissions suggest he had focused on the 1200 building, where the killings took place, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Even President Trump criticized the officer's alleged inaction, saying he would have run into the school if he were in that same situation.

"Make sure there's no pedestrian traffic anywhere on Holmberg Road", Peterson said.

And first responders could be heard trying unsuccessfully to communicate among themselves due to equipment failures and other issues.
